Arsenal has been unlucky when it comes to injuries. The club has always had several injured players. Injuries have often affected their gameplay and eventually messed up the results. Recently Alexis has gotten injured, news said. Their injury list never seems to stop. Gunners’ gaffer Wenger is looking for replacements after Coquelin has gone down with injury. He has faced a knee injury and will probably be out for the next upcoming months. In this time of crisis, Wenger has found a potential replacement for the injured midfielder. Arsene is targeting Ruben Neves of Porto.

Sources say that Wenger was already scouting the player since a long time and is now targeting him. Neves plays for Porto currently and was on loan at Padroense between the years 2012 and 2013 Neves broke a Champions League record earlier this season by becoming the youngest player captain by skippering Porto against Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Ruben is 18 and is claimed to be a promising talent. He possesses a pass success rate of 85% in his 5 Champions League appearances for Porto. Arsenal is reported to put up a £10 million bid for him initially and an added amount of £12 million in the form of bonuses will be followed later on. Considering his age, the amount offered is a huge for him. Being just 18, a £22 million deal simply reflects his ability as a player. It seems as to that the North London club has a upper hand in the current scenario and could succeed in signing him up.
