Potential Arsenal target attracting interest

As the summer of intense spending in the Premier League nears its conclusion, another high-profile name is attracting attention and that is Wolverhampton Wanderers’ winger Pedro Neto.

Wolves are no strangers to spending this summer as their new club record signing Matheus Nunes has taken their spending over £100M.

However, now they may be focusing on more outgoings as Neto is attracting interest from the Premier League elites.

Since arriving at Molineux in 2019, the Portuguese winger has displayed a number of impressive performances that have garnered interest around the league, according to Fabrizio Romano.

A serious knee injury in 2021 derailed the trajectory that he was on, but having made a full recovery, bigger clubs are looking to make him their newest acquisition.

According to reports, clubs at the top end of the table have been made aware that Neto could be available at the right price, and this has firmly put him on their radar.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are all rumoured to want to acquire the services of Neto and he would be a prudent signing for all three clubs.

These teams have made inroads into bolstering their teams for the upcoming season and a right-sided winger is still on all of their bucket lists.

Arsenal specifically have been looking for a right-sided winger to provide much-needed competition for Bukayo Saka.

Saka featured in every Premier League game last season and started all but two of them on his way to winning his second consecutive Arsenal player of the season.

A player of Neto’s quality would provide Mikel Arteta with another potent weapon for his young squad, and also give Saka an opportunity for more rest for what is sure to be a daunting season.

Since arriving in the Premier League, the 22-year-old has amassed 75 appearances and amassed 9 goals and 10 assists and has been a crucial cog in the well-oiled machine that Wolves have been mounting.

Arsenal are also reportedly still in the market for a central midfielder, with Youri Tielemans linked.
