Ruben Neves is ready to take on new challenges, with Liverpool and Chelsea ready to go head to head to bring the Porto midfielder to the Premier League, claims A Bola (as reported by The Mirror).
Neves is a fantastic passer of the ball who is calm, composed and has the ability to dictate the pace of play, attributing his style of play similar to that of Andrea Pirlo and former Liverpool great Xabi Alonso.
The technically gifted, the deep-set playmaker has garnered interest from Europe’s elite, including the Reds several times since his impressive debut season with Porto at the age of 17.
The 20-year-old Portuguese wonderkid has 2 years left on his contract, with a €40 million buyout clause, which is great value for a player who has his prime years ahead of him.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp seems to prefer such gifted youngsters, who he can further refine and become part of his long term plans at Anfield.
