Juventus Keen on Signing Wolves Ruben Neves Following Andrea Agnellis Meeting With Jorge Mendes

Juventus are apparently interested in bringing Wolverhampton Wanderers midfield Ruben Neves to Turin, following a meeting between Sporting Director Fabio Paratici, Club President Andrea Agnelli and super agent Jorge Mendes.

Mendes represents Neves, who joined the English side for around €18m in July 2017 and lead the team's promotion to the Premier League, as well as current Juve players Joao Cancelo and Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to ​Tuttosport, while the meeting served principally as a catch up between the trio, and is not an irregular occurrence, it is understood the idea of Ruben Neves switching Wolverhampton for ​Turin was discussed. 

The Portuguese midfielder, who was most recently in action for his country as they sealed their progression to the UEFA Nations League Finals with a 0-0 draw against Italy in Milan, has been integral to Wolves' impressive start to life in the Premier League. 

The 21-year-old has played every single minute of the Wanderers' league campaign so far, providing two goals and an assist. 

Alongside the discussions about Neves, the prosperity of ​Ronaldo's move to I Bianconeri was also brought up in the meeting, which was also incidentally held in Milan. And Mendes is understood to have outlined his five-time Ballon d'Or winning client's satisfaction with his switch from ​Real Madrid to Juve. 

As for Neves, the 36-time Serie A champions are thought to be keen to secure his services this January if possible, though ​Wolves fans can be comforted by the bumper five-year contract that their player signed this summer.
