Arsenal: Gunners ‘made aware’ of Pedro Neto availability

Arsenal: Gunners ‘made aware’ of Pedro Neto availability -Arsenal News

Arsenal have been ‘made aware’ of the availability of Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Pedro Neto, report 90min

The lowdown: Long-standing admiration

The Gunners have been extensively indexed to Neto previously, with many believing that the Premier League sensation could be the ‘mystery winger’ Edu was in search of for Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Signed from Lazio in 2019, the 22-year-old fully fledged Portugal international has impressed for Wolves in the top flight despite suffering injuries during his time in England.

Now, it appears as though the interest from the north Londoners could be about to be resurrected as Arsenal and others get given encouragement to make a move for Neto…

The latest: ‘Made aware’

As per 90min, the three-cap star is believed to be ‘attracting interest late in the window’ from a number of clubs.

It’s claimed that Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been ‘made aware’ that Neto could be available for a transfer before the September 1 deadline.

The report also states that ‘intermediaries have been making it known’ that the attacker – who was hailed as a ‘wonderful talent’ by journalist Nathan Judah – would be available ‘at the right price’ this summer.

The verdict: Make a move

Albeit the signings of Marquinhos and Gabriel Jesus mean that Arteta has a healthy set of attacking options at his disposal, adding a player of Neto’s ilk would truly be the icing on the cake of the Emirates Stadium squad.

Already linked to the likes of Lucas Paqueta, Raphinha and Cody Gakpo, it seems apparent that Edu is keen to add another wide option before the September 1 deadline passes.

Sharing a close stylistic likeness to Adama Traore, Lorenzo Insigne and Arsenal’s own Bukayo Saka (FBref), the skilful Portuguese forward can operate on either wing and in central positions, making him the ideal candidate to bolster the N7 ranks.

Under contract until 2027 (Transfermarkt), the aforementioned ‘right price’ is likely to be close to or even in excess of the Gunners’ club record expenditure of £72million shelled out to bring Nicolas Pepe to north London.
