Liverpool Have Already Shown Arsenal How To Complete £40m Summer Transfer And Save Millions

For the second year in a row, Wolves could end up selling a Portugal international to one of the Premier League’s ‘big six’ clubs.

In September 2020 it was Diogo Jota who left Molineux as he joined a Liverpool side looking to defend their crown.

This summer could see Ruben Neves leave Wolves with reports claiming that Arsenal are interested in signing the central midfielder as Mikel Arteta looks to bolster his first-team squad.

In fact, according to the Daily Mail, Neves ‘is aware of the interest and indicated his willingness to join the Gunners to his teammates’ as Wolves ‘brace’ themselves for a bid for the £35m-rated midfielder.

With that said, it has been reported elsewhere that Wolves are ready to demand a minimum of £40m for the 24-year-old.

However, if Arsenal copy a Liverpool transfer tactic they could end up paying a very small fee up front for Neves this summer which frees up some funds for technical director Edu to focus on other deals.

As reported by the Telegraph, the Reds’ deal to sign Jota last year was structured to combat the impact of Covid on finances for clubs up and down the country as well as in Europe.

In addition, the deal includes further instalments over the years to assist Wolves with their budget and cash-flow.

Therefore, whilst Liverpool will eventually end up paying up to £45m for Jota, they only paid £4m up front and a further £1m in December.

And a cash injection is heading Wolves’ way ahead of the new season as they will receive a further £12m payment from the Merseyside giants as per the agreement over how the deal is structured.

So in total, the Reds will have only paid £17m for Jota after the next transaction.

After a year without fans, that windfall will certainly be a financial boost for Wolves – and it could have an impact on Arsenal.

As clubs are still feeling the financial effects of playing in an empty stadium, Wolves might be open to a similar structure of payment with the Gunners for Neves.

Keep in mind they are getting a cash injection from elsewhere, so that could be a way for the north London outfit to save a few millions when it comes to the initial up front payment.

This may also explain why Neves has suddenly become a target for Arsenal with Brighton reportedly demanding £40m for Yves Bissouma.
