Wolves Star Pedro Neto in Arsenal Sights

VITOR ROQUE

Pedro Neto is expected to sign with Arsenal rather than Manchester United, but TEAMtalk reports that Wolves would want a high price for the winger.

Wolves Position

Ten points above the relegation zone, Wolves are presently 12th in the Premier League. While they have occasionally struggled with lacklustre performances. They have also put up strong shows in the league. As seen by their 2-1 triumph over the reigning champions Man City. As well as their 2-2 draw with Newcastle United and their 2-1 victory over Tottenham.

Neto, who has been among the top wingers in Europe this season. Is one of the team’s bright spots under Gary O’Neil. With seven assists in 10 games so far this season, Neto is now leading the Premier League assist conversation.

Pedro Neto Interest

Due to his impressive achievements, teams in the Saudi Pro League, Manchester United, and Arsenal have taken note of the 23-year-old and are hoping to sign him in the summer. But Mikel Arteta’s side appears to have a better chance of closing a deal, according to TeamTalk.

TeamTalk believes that Wolves would seek a £60 million price for Neto. Whose contract expires in June 2027, before a trade can proceed, so any potential move won’t come cheap.

The Arsenal board has identified Neto as a possible swap to provide depth to the team. As they want to win all of their local and continental tournaments.

Injury

The Portuguese international was substituted off in Wolves’ 2:2 draw with Newcastle. Appearing to have suffered a serious injury after displaying signs of pain. Therefore the likelihood of a transfer might suddenly change. However, Neto is anticipated to return before the January transfer window shuts, and interested parties are prepared to move as soon as he gets well.

The winger would prefer a transfer to Europe over a high-paying move to the Middle East, according to rumours, thus Arsenal will relish their chances of signing him.
