The Magpies are on the hunt for a holding midfielder and the Portugal international has Premier League pedigree, something boss Eddie Howe is keen on.

Newcastle are watching the market this month and will only make a meaningful move if injuries force their hand or a deal shows value.

Neves has been linked with the likes of Barcelona and Arsenal in recent seasons but Newcastle’s project is one of the most exciting in European football and the club are confident St James’ Park will attract goals.

Barcelona’s Franck Kessie, 26, is a midfielder who has been suggested by Newcastle’s scouts as he becomes available this month but is believed to favor other targets on the list. West Ham’s Harrison Ashby, the 21-year-old right-back, also remains of interest.

Meanwhile, Paul Midgley, the club’s new youth recruitment chief, is spearheading the search for up-and-coming talent and one name we know is being pursued is Stoke Under-18 forward Nathan Lowe.

Neves has made 234 appearances for Wolves since joining the club from Porto in 2017
