Edu to step in as Neves tells Wolves pals he's ready for Arsenal move

Arsenal chief Edu is ready to close a deal for Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal are of the belief that if a deal is to be done, it is best completed before next Tuesday, when Portugal play their first game of Euro 2020.

This is because Edu knows that should Neves establish himself as one of the stars of the tournament, his price tag will inevitably increase as well as attracting a number of other suitors.

The midfield has been identified as a problem area for the Gunners and Neves' arrival may be even more necessary in the wake of Granit Xhaka's imminent departure.

Neves has already told some of his Wolves teammates he is desperate to make the move to the Gunners.
