Ruben Neves has already addressed speculation over his future amid links with Arsenal.
The Wolves star is being heavily linked with a move away from Molineux this summer having hugely impressed since his 2017 move from Porto.
Neves played a key role in Wolves’ promotion from the Championship, and he has continued to star in their solid Premier League campaigns since.
The midfielder is among the best holding midfielders in the Premier League, and he is being linked with a move away from Wolves as a result.
The 25-year-old is still under contract until 2024, but the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United are being tipped to attempt to sign the Portuguese star this summer.
And as the rumours continue to do the rounds, Neves has already addressed his future.
“It’s normal in football,” Neves told Record in March. “Whenever there’s a transfer market there’s a lot of talk, but my goal and focus are on Wolverhampton and I’m not going to change that, things have been going really well for me.
“I still have a lot to learn, I have a lot to give here. The future will be seen soon, I like to live in the present and I’m happy, I feel great in Wolverhampton and I’ll focus here, because if I do things right I’m sure the future will be bright.
“My goal will always be to give my best and give even more for the club.”
Crucially, Neves also spoke of his admiration for the Premier League, suggesting that he could stay in England for the rest of his career.
“I could easily see myself having the rest of my career here, it’s a spectacular championship,” he added.
“Only those who pass through here know how good it is to participate in the Premier League, how much we grow with each game and each training session, the environment in stadiums, the way football is lived, the way fans respect the players… It’s another level and, honestly, I see myself doing my entire career here.
“But in football, the future is very uncertain and we don’t know what will happen. Obviously, I’m curious to see other championships, but I definitely like being here.”
There has been talk of Wolves demanding £100million for Neves this summer in a bid to put off rival clubs from making offers.
Arsenal would not be likely to pay anywhere near that for one player, needing to address a number of areas this summer.
But that’s not to say a deal can’t be reached between now and next season.
