Arsenal plan big hit in January, the popular Portuguese could return to the Premier League

Arsenal are looking for a midfielder in the January transfer window after Ghanaian Thomas Partey has ended 2023 due to injury, while Ruben Neves is on the list to replace him.

The former Wolves captain moved to Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia in the summer.

Newcastle want him on loan instead of Sandro Tonali (suspended), but the new rule that is expected to be applied in the Premier League will not allow such an operation, as Newcastle and Al-Hilal have the same owners, PIF (Fund of Public Investments of Saudi Arabia).

Premier League clubs will vote in favor of blocking loans between clubs with the same ownership.

In such conditions, Arsenal is looking to take advantage, which is ready to return the Portuguese midfielder to England.

The Gunners have also tried in the past for Ruben Neves, a footballer who is liked by coach Mikel Arteta.

The London team is competing for the title of champion, a trophy that has been missing since 2004, but also in the Champions League and the coach needs more players.
