Arsenal chiefs continue to be interested in Wolves talent Pedro Neto. The Londoners have been monitoring the player for a long time, as coach Arteta and sporting director Edu are fans of the 23-year-old. The Portuguese is a self-proclaimed Arsenal fan, which puts the London club in a better position than rival clubs looking to land Neto.
The player is represented by super-agent Jorge Mendes, and was rumored for a transfer to Arsenal this summer. However, Wolves leaders were quick to shut down talks as they did not want to lose their superstar. Meanwhile, the fantastic start that Neto has made this season will most likely be translated into the increase in the value of the Portuguese card. Currently, the player is valued at 28 million euros.
Neto has an active contract with Wolves until 2027, which could complicate a potential Arsenal move in January. The player signed the contract last year, declaring his loyalty to Wolves. However, this may change. Arsenal, on the other hand, needs reinforcements in the offensive department, and is considering other options.
Another alternative for the London club is striker Ivan Toney of Brentford. Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard are currently injured at Arsenal, a situation that leaves coach Arteta looking for alternatives in attack. However, it must be said that Neto will remain the main focus of the club leaders.
Arsenal tried to sign the Portuguese back in 2017 when he was playing for Braga in Portugal. At that time, Arsene Wenger was the coach of Arsenal. However, the forward joined Italians Lazio before moving to Wolves, where his career took off.
