Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Wolves star Ruben Neves with the Championship side already having a replacement lined up, according to journalist Marcus Alves.

Wolves have secured Premier League promotion for next season with Neves playing a starring role.

However, Liverpool could be about to poach the 21-year-old, with Alves claiming a deal is in the works.

The journalist, who is based in Lisbon and has worked for FourFourTwo and Kicker, has taken to Twitter to make the claim.

He also says Wolves have lined up a replacement in the form of Besiktas’ Anderson Talisca.
