Barca 'open talks' with EPL star

World News

FC Barcelona have reportedly begun talks to sign a Premier League star who is also understood to be a target for Manchester United and Arsenal.

The Spanish giants have been one of the busier sides in the transfer market in recent times as they look to bolster their squad ahead of Xavi Hernandez's first full season in charge in 2022/23.

The Spaniard has already brought in the likes of Dani Alves, Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as well as Adama Traore on loan.

With three of the Blaugrana's latest four signings coming from the Premier League, the club has now seemingly set their sights on yet another English top-flight star as their rebuild in the post-Lionel Messi era continues.

According to the Daily Mail, the Catalan giants have opened talks with Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves' intermediaries regarding a possible transfer in the next window.

It is claimed the Portugal star, who has also been linked with a switch to the Red Devils and the Gunners, is open to a move away from Molineux even though he still has two years remaining on his contract with Wolves.

Neves joined Wolves from FC Porto in 2017 and has gone on to make 203 appearances for the side, in addition to helping them gain promotion from the Championship ahead of the 2018/19 season after a six-year absence from the EPL.
