WOLVES star Ruben Neves could reportedly be set for a January move to Juventus.

Calcio Mercato claims his agent, Jorge Mendes, is keen to engineer a move to Turin after forging a new working relationship with Juve’s hierarchy.

The Portuguese negotiator masterminded Cristiano Ronaldo’s seemingly-impossible move from Real Madrid over the summer without any hitches.

And Mendes also helped Juventus secure right-back Joao Cancelo from Valencia.

The ace had starred at Inter Milan the season before and looked set for a permanent San Siro switch before the Serie A champs came calling.

Max Allegri has guided his team to the top of the Italian league once again, but is understood to be searching for a new central midfielder.
