Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is still being linked with a move for Wolves star Ruben Navas despite his price tag. Newly promoted Wolves are desperate to keep their star man and the 21-year-old has enjoyed a great start to the season in the Premier League.
That form has led to him being linked with a move away and City are said to be keen as they look for a holding midfielder who can eventually replace Brazilian star Fernandinho at the club.
The £15.8m signing from Porto, who has had a price tag of £60m slapped on his head by Wolves, only signed a new five-year deal at Molineux last summer but that may not deter Guardiola from making a move.
City have spent the last six months compiling extensive reports on Neves as well as Ajax’s Frenkie De Jong and Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele, as the boss considers his options for January and beyond.
