Should Everton move for Wolves star Pedro Neto?

Everton are seemingly in the mood to spend big this summer as Rafa Benitez is welcomed back to Merseyside with a war chest to utilise on new recruits.

What’s the word?

The Toffees haven’t been afraid to spend huge sums of money in the last few years and with Benitez at the helm, the Spaniard has been promised a healthy budget.

Ben White has been linked with a mega-money switch to Goodison Park while flying wing-back Denzel Dumfries has also been targeted.

Throw in a light sprinkling of Wilfried Zaha on top of that and this would be an exciting window for Everton.

Another player they could sign from the Premier League is Wolves attacker Pedro Neto.

He was linked with the club a few months ago, and Marcus Bent had his say on a potential move this weekend.

Would Neto be a good signing for Everton?

No way!

No way!



Speaking to This is Futbol, he commented: “He can play out wide, he can play down the middle, scores goals as well. I think that’s the key at the minute, quick winger, cannot just score goals, he’s got a good pass on him; he’s got a good through ball.

“He’s done well at Wolves. To bring him in at Everton at that age would be brilliant.”

Imagine him & DCL

Providing Dominic Calvert-Lewin remains at the Toffees this summer, then Benitez could create a magical duo at Goodison Park.

They already have Richarlison in wide areas but he was guilty of running down blind alleys and lacking end product at times.

The Brazilian ended the season with an impressive 13 goals but found the net just once in his last 12 outings.

His ability to provide goals was also rather poor; assisting one strike in the league since December.

Despite his poor numbers, Neto would have the ability to turn up on a more consistent basis.

Touted at £50m, he was named Wolves’ Player of the Season for 2020/21 after ending as their top scorer.

Guess the obscure Everton players...who is standing next to Lookman?

He beat the goalkeeper on just five occasions but was rampant down the wings and mesmeric with both feet.

Described as “sensational” by Jamie Redknapp, Neto completed 2.1 dribbles per game, which was more take-ons than any other player at Goodison Park.

At the age of just 21, the Portuguese is one of the most promising young players in English football.

If anyone can get Goodison rocking again then it’s him. On countless occasions Neto has dazzled the Wolves supporters with a moment of trickery or a burst of pace down the flanks.

He has the ability to take Everton’s attack to the next level alongside Calvert-Lewin. After all, the more players Neto is beating, the better chance the ball has of arriving at his feet or head inside the area.

AND in other news, Celtic eye move for “wonderful” 18-goal beast, he’s a big upgrade on Griffiths…
