Ruben Neves is reportedly linked with a summer move away from Wolverhampton Wanderers, with Barcelona and Liveropol keen.

A report from Football Insider claims that Premier League side Liverpool are keen on signing Ruben Neves. And the Reds are hoping to beat Barcelona to the signature of the Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder, whose market value is €40 million.

The 26-year-old midfielder has established himself as a reliable performer in the Premier League, and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for Liverpool. The Reds are in desperate need of midfield reinforcements, and Neves has the quality to improve Liverpool next season.

Liverpool have had a disappointing campaign, and the midfield has been a major concern for them. Players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, James Milner and Naby Keita are now set to leave the club as free agents.

Jurgen Klopp is thus left needing a number of midfield signings, and Neves has emerged as a viable target. The 26-year-old midfielder is an exceptional passer from the deep and he will add some much-needed composure, control and defensive cover to the side.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have been linked with the player as well, and they could certainly use a quality central midfielder. The Blaugrana will part ways with club legend Sergio Busquets at the end of the season, and Neves could prove to be a quality alternative.

Although he does not have the defensive attributes of Busquets, he is a top-class passer who will add a new dimension to the Barcelona midfield. The opportunity to play for Barcelona could prove to be a tempting proposition. So time will tell whether Liverpool are capable of convincing the player to snub the opportunity to move to Camp Nou and move to Anfield instead.

The Reds will likely miss out on UEFA Champions League qualification, which could weaken their case when it comes to convincing the player to join them. Barcelona, on the other hand, have won the league title this year and will be playing in UCL next year. The 26-year-old midfielder will want to compete at the highest level. So a move to Spain might seem like a more attractive destination for him.
