Here is your Arsenal morning digest on Thursday, July 29.
Neves waits for United transfer
Ruben Neves prefers a move to Manchester United this summer, despite reported interest from Arsenal.
That’s according to Eurosport reporter Dean Jones, speaking on the Football Terrace podcast, who says the Wolves midfielder is “not sure” that moving to the Gunners is the “right move” for him at this stage of his career.
Neves has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Man United in recent weeks, but he is reportedly prepared to wait in order to seal a move to Old Trafford.
Jones said: “I haven’t heard much about Aouar to be honest, but in terms of Neves, they’ve definitely tried that.
“Again, the player’s not sure if that’s the right move for him at this stage.
“With Man United also in view for him, he’d rather wait things out and see whether that will actually come to fruition.”

Marc Overmars has revealed there is yet to be any contact between Ajax and Arsenal for goalkeeper Andre Onana this summer.
