Told Rúben Neves is in Liverpool today.

The Portuguese midfielder has been exceptional this season for Championship side Wolves, helping them win promotion to the Premier League at the first time of asking since his transfer from FC Porto.
In truth, the youngster is far too good not to be playing in one of Europe’s best leagues, evidenced by the fact he was skippering Porto aged 17 in the Champions League!
Liverpool are losing Emre Can on a free transfer, so need a new anchorman purchased as a necessity this summer.
Neves ticks a lot of boxes: he’s young enough to improve, is technically exceptional and is very experienced for a player his age.
Naturally, fans on Twitter have reacted accordingly:
Just seen Rúben Neves in Liverpool city centre 👀

Potentially Naby Keïta, Rúben Neves and James Maddison to help bolster our midfield next season.
Good options. Thoughts?
