Video: Liverpool target Ruben Neves wins ball before brilliant assist for Wolves vs Everton

Posted by

In the 73rd minute of Wolves’ Premier League clash against Everton, Ruben Neves comfortably thwarted skilful Samba star Bernard’s attempt at a roulette to win the ball back for the Midlands outfit.

The 23-year-old carried the ball forward confidently before looking up and launching a pinpoint long-range pass cross-field and into Diogo Jota’s path.

Jota made no mistake as he expertly controlled the ball before firing it into the near post corner from a tight angle.

According to the Sun, Jurgen Klopp is an admirer of Neves and wants the £50m-rated maestro to freshen up Liverpool’s midfield ranks.

Take a look at Wolves’ third of the game below:

A fine performance against Liverpool’s local rivals is as good an acid test as Neves can get.
