Arsenal join race to sign Porto midfield starlet Ruben Neves

Arsenal are said to have joined the likes of Liverpool and West Ham in the hunt for teenage Porto midfielder Ruben Neves, according to the Metro.

The teenage midfielder has impressed during his time with the Portuguese big hitters, and further enhanced his reputation last month by bagging an assist during the Champions League clash against Chelsea last month (via Metro) and a report on talkSPORT is now claiming that the Gunners have been having him scouted in recent weeks.

The Metro likens Neves to Barcelona star Sergio Busquets, and though young Frenchman Francis Coquelin has proved himself to be a real commodity in that position over the past year, Arsenal have been said to be looking for players in that particular area over the summer.
