Transfer Talk: Liverpool target rising Wolverhampton star Ruben Neves

Clubs are slowly turning their eyes toward the summer window. Transfer Talk has the updates on all the latest rumours.

Liverpool target Neves

Wolverhampton Wanderers wonderkid Ruben Neves has emerged as a leading target for Liverpool following his exploits in the Championship this season, reports TalkSport.

Neves has helped steer Wolves back to the Premier League, scoring some stunning goals along the way, and his sparkling performances have apparently caught the eye of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.


Who are newly promoted Wolves, how will they handle the Premier League?

On Saturday, Wolverhampton Wanderers achieved promotion to the Premier League with four games to spare, returning to the top flight for the first time since 2012. It's been a long journey back, after they dropped to League One in 2013, but thanks in large part to significant financial backing from Chinese consortium Fosun and links with super agent Jorge Mendes, they're back.

Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill becomes a Wolves supporter

Wolverhampton Wanderers picked up a new celebrity fan over the weekend in the somewhat unlikely form of actor Mark Hamill.

While freely admitting that he'd never previously heard of the Championship team, a minor Twitter mix-up saw Hamill pledge his allegiance to the Old Gold cause.

Indeed, it all started when the 65-year-old, who you may recognise as playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, liked a tweet sent to him by a Wolves fan assuming it was in reference to the animal.

Why has Ruben Neves joined Wolves? It's down to Jorge Mendes

Ruben Neves
Ruben Neves is one of Europe's hottest young midfielders.

One of the transfer coups of the summer has been pulled off by English Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers.
