Wolverhampton Wanderers have been a revelation in this year Championship as they have won the title on a canter. They have been on top of the table since mid-November and went on to secure their move into the Premier League. The West Midlands club have also spent big in the transfer market as they signed some highly rated players.
They signed Ruben Neves for a club record fee in the summer and he has been brilliant for them as he has helped them move to top-flight football. On the back of such performance, Neves has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs might lose out on Moussa Dembele in the summer and this can leave a big hole in midfield for the London club.
Neves can be a good fit for Pochettino but he can be tough to lure in as he claimed that he is currently happy with Wolves’. He said-”Honestly, I love to play here. I love the boys and I love the fans. I am really happy here.” Such words will give Wolves fans hope that their star man is going to stay at the club.
At EFL awards he further added-”Of course, it is my first season in the Premier League. It is the place that Wolves deserve. The fans deserve it as well.I have it all to stay, but in football, we never know. Yes, I would like to stay.When I came here, I came to improve myself and help the club.”
“Fortunately, I have improved myself this year in a really good league so I am happy to be here. I love the club and I love the fans. I am happy to be here and fortunately, we are in the Premier League and that’s the most important thing”
After such statements, it looks highly unlikely that he can be lured by Pochettino. But a chance to play in Champions League football can be tempting for the Portuguese. He has formed a great partnership with his former Porto boss Nuno Espirito Santo and he utilises him to his utmost abilities. At Spurs, he might have to fight for his place and might have to bide his time on the bench. Whereas at Wolves he will be their main man and will be a regular starter. It seems that Neves will likely stick with the Championship winners for one season at least. However, one cannot count out his move to Spurs.
