Ruben Neves tells Chelsea why the Wolves player might be a ‘great’ signing amid £25 million transfer speculation

Rayan Ait-Nouri has been dubbed ‘excellent’ by both Wolves player Ruben Neves and manager Bruno Lage, amid reports that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is eyeing the defender as a long-term successor for Marcos Alonso ahead of the 2022/23 season.

With the transfer market officially open, Liverpool and Man City have made their first moves, signing Darwin Nunez of Benfica and Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund, respectively. With the announcements of the Marquinhos and Ivan Perisic agreements, even fourth and fifth-placed Arsenal and Spurs have shown their fangs.

Despite the evident and strong ties to the likes of Jules Kounde and Ousmane Dembele, Chelsea’s incoming activity has failed to ignite, despite Billy Gilmour’s contract extension at the start of this week. In reality, the current World champions’ agenda is currently dominated by outgoings.
A number of players, including Andreas Christensen, were released at the conclusion of their contracts, while Antonio Rudiger turned down a new contract to try his luck at Real Madrid. Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta, for example, might follow suit very soon, with the former appearing to be closer to the departure doors.

Along with Christensen, Barcelona is aiming to sign both Spaniards. While the sale of Frenkie De Jong to Manchester United will help the Spanish club balance its books, Todd Boehly’s Chelsea must get moving in the transfer market, since it is thought that the Blues leadership would not let any full-backs go until a replacement has been found.
Defensive targets for the center-back position appear to be plenty, but the full-back position is more up for dispute in the early stages of this summer transfer season. In the midst of all the external transfer speculation about Marc Cucurella, Borna Sosa, Achraf Hakimi, and even inside names like Dujon Sterling, there appeared to be no real tangible ties to players who were aggressively sought to date.

That, however, might be about to change. According to journalist Alan Nixon, Tuchel has focused his attention on Ait-Nouri as the west Londoners hunt for a cost-effective successor before approving Alonso’s Camp Nou dream.
According to Birmingham Live, the player, who played 1,838 Premier League minutes last season, could only cost Boehly’s new consortium £25 million, which is considered fair for a player who came with such high expectations when Jorge Mendes’ client moved permanently to England from fits of anger for £10 million last summer after impressing on his first loan move back in 2020/21.

After scoring the equalizer in Wolves’ late-season match against Norwich City, the Molineux club might earn a fast £15 million profit on their versatile wing-back. Nuno Espirito Santo’s successor described the performance as “amazing.”

“Rayan is having a tremendous season and he is deserving of this honor. We did our hardest and made some adjustments. We came up with a fresh concept and a new dynamic “Wolves’ official website reported on the Portuguese.

Neves, who might yet transfer inside the Premier League this summer if his dream Barcelona move cannot be funded, has stated the same thing about a youngster who made his debut against Crystal Palace in a 2-0 home triumph in October 2020 during an initial loan stay.

According to Neves: “Rayan is also a superb player with a lot of potentials. We tried to assist him as much as possible because it was his debut, but we’re really proud of him because he had a fantastic game, scoring a goal that will be very helpful to us, so we’re very happy for him and hope he keeps working hard because he’s a fantastic player.”
