Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing Wolves winger Pedro Neto in the summer, according to a new transfer rumour which has emerged during the international break.
The Lowdown: Neto a prized asset
Bruno Lage has a number of talented players at his disposal but Neto is arguably the most prized asset at Molineux currently, perhaps along with Ruben Neves.
The 22-year-old has already scored 10 goals and registered 11 assists for the Wanderers and he is now back in the fold after a long-term injury absence, recently penning a new deal to keep him at the club until 2027.
A worrying rumour is now doing the rounds regarding the Portuguese starlet’s future, though, as the summer window slowly edges closer.
The Latest: PSG keen on move
According to The Daily Mail, PSG have added Neto to their list of potential signings at the end of the season, with the Ligue 1 giants ‘monitoring his progress’ between now and May.
Raphinha and Ousmane Dembele are also thought to be options.
The Verdict: Can’t afford to lose him
At 22, Neto still has so much time on his side that it would be a disaster for Wolves to lose him this early in his career, having been hailed as a ‘huge talent’ by Premier League legend Alan Shearer.
The youngster can be the attacking star of the team for Lage for a number of years, making the left-sided role his own and maturing into an even more formidable player as he regains fitness and earns more Premier League experience.
Should Neto suddenly demand a move, however, that new deal does at least run until 2027, meaning PSG or other suitors would likely have to pay an extortionate amount for his services, generating funds for replacement signings at Molineux.
