This is according to the Sun, who note that Neves is now high up on City’s shortlist after Jorginho sealed a switch to Stamford Bridge earlier this season.

The report also notes that Guardiola may be willing to dip into the transfer market once again in the winter transfer window, but only if the right player becomes available.

Man City are said to be weighing up a move for Neves in January

Since moving to England from Porto in the summer of 2017, Neves has become one of the most talked about players in the country, something that is mainly down to his stellar performances for Wolves in the Championship last season.

The 21-year-old scored six goals and bagged one assist for the west Midland club last season as they strolled to the title in England’s second division.

The player’s fantastic passing range and ability to score all types of goals have seen some label him as one of the brightest players in England.

If City do end up moving for Neves, it’ll be interesting to see if the player ends up costing them £60M, or whether they can snag a cheaper deal for the midfielder.
