What’s been said?

Well-known and well-respected journalist Castles has said that Arsenal signing Neves from Wolves depends on the Gunners getting money in from the sale of 28-year-old Xhaka.

Castles said on the Transfer Window Podcast: “Ruben Neves is another individual there, that one dependent on trying to sell Granit Xhaka to Roma and agreeing a price on that.”

It does seem likely that Xhaka will leave Arsenal.

If you have followed the rumours regarding Roma, you will know that the only obstacle is the Italian club agreeing a transfer fee with Arsenal.

Wolves are reportedly open to selling Neves, who is playing for Portugal at the Euro 2020 finals now.
