Some Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur supporters have their hearts set on the same Wolverhampton Wanderers player.

Wolves recorded an impressive 4-0 first-leg win over Espanyol in the last 32 of the Europa League on Thursday.

It could be argued that both Arsenal (Aaron Ramsey) and Tottenham (Mousa Dembele) have failed to adequately replace recently departed midfielders.

And Neves, who has already captained Porto, won 13 caps for Portugal and led Wolves into Europe from the Championship inside two years, could be a player both clubs would consider in future transfer windows.

Arsenal and Tottenham fans - what do you think of Neves?
