Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves was by far and away the best midfielder in the Championship last term as his side waltzed to the title, and he’s started this campaign where he left off…
The young Portuguese has been exemplary so far, helping Wolves to nine points from six games and 10th position. They’ve already played Manchester United and Manchester City, too.
Neves has been linked to Liverpool for many a season, such as here by FourFourTwo in April, but it now seems buying Neves will be pretty much impossible for everyone.
Wolves have reportedly put a price tag of £110m on Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves…

The Times claim Wolves will demand over £100m from any prospective buyers for the 21-year-old who is showing the potential to develop into a genuinely world-class deep-lying playmaker.
This would make him more expensive than Paul Pogba at £89m and Naby Keita at £56m, the two dearest midfielders in English football history.
In fairness, Liverpool purchased Fabinho in the summer and the Brazilian hasn’t yet got into the side, so it’s not like we need another player competing for the no.6 role.
Gini Wijnaldum has done so well in the position that Jordan Henderson is arguably now his backup in our first-choice XI, with Fabinho behind the skipper!
