Arsenal, Man Utd and Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs ‘keeping tabs’ on Ruben Neves with him ‘ready to leave’ Wolves.
It was reported earlier this week that the player’s representatives would ‘welcome an approach’ from Manchester United.
The 25-year-old has spent the last five seasons at Wolves. They paid £15.8m to sign him from Porto when they were in the Championship.
Neves has played over 200 times for them since 2017. He has been in sensational form this season for Wolves, who currently sit eighth in the Premier League.
The midfielder’s current contract at Wolves is due to expire in 2024. It was revealed last month that he is valued at £50m by the English side.
90min are reporting that Neves is now ‘ready to leave’ Wolves. It is said that he has indicated to the club that he ‘wishes to explore other options’ this summer.
Arsenal, Man Utd, Tottenham, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are all ‘keeping tabs’ on the Portugal international.
The Clarets host Wolves in the Premier League on Sunday, with caretaker manager Mike Jackson still in charge following the sacking of Sean Dyche.
Braga boss Carvalhal is one of the names to have been linked most strongly with the Clarets and Lage, who worked under him at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea, believes he could offer what they are looking for.
Lage said: “I think he is in the best moment of his career because what he did in these years in Braga, it’s what Carlos can do at a club. He has a good team, he went to three finals I think, and in two years he sold a lot of players and they rebuilt the team with a lot of young players.
“You can see there’s a guy who can give you the first impact and can give for the club a different direction straight away.
“I didn’t know he was one of the names for Burnley. If the club wants a guy with a vision who rebuilds something, of course it’s one good name for any team, not just Burnley.”
