Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Wolves could still keep Pedro Neto

Wolves winger Pedro Neto has been subject to a lot of interest from Arsenal in recent weeks but it seems as if he could still remain with Bruno Lage’s side this summer.

What’s the word?

Reports have suggested that Mikel Arteta’s side have submitted a £50m bid for the Portuguese winger and that he could be on his way out of Molineux before the transfer window shuts later this month.

However, Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth has suggested that he could still be lining up for the Old Gold in a few weeks’ time, as he revealed in an interview with GIVEMESPORT.

He said:

“As far as Wolves are concerned, he’s not going to be sold in this transfer window. That’s the information I was told – this transfer window.

“Maybe in the future, Arsenal could go back in. Who knows? Neto could be the longer-term target, but there is definitely interest to strengthen that forward line.”

Huge boost for Lage

After missing much of last season through injury, fans may have been hoping that Neto would be the catalyst to unlocking Wolves’ attacking potential this season.

Will Neto stay at Wolves?





The Old Gold managed just 38 goals in the top flight last season, the fewest of any side to not be relegated, which suggests that a lot of their problems lay in the attack.

So far, only Goncalo Guedes has arrived to strengthen Lage’s attacking options, while Fabio Silva has departed for Anderlecht, so to lose another attacker could be a big problem for the Portuguese manager.

Neto emphasised in the 2020/21 season how dangerous he can be for Wolves, as he hit five goals and six assists in the Premier League, averaging a superb 7.11 rating from WhoScored for his performances.

His displays that season earned him the praise of Premier League legend Alan Shearer, who described Neto as:

“A huge talent who is having a fine season. He changed the game and scored a great goal.”

While he is yet to score or assist in the top flight this season, with Wolves hitting just one goal in their opening three Premier League fixtures, Neto looks likely to be a key figure again in this campaign, so Lage will surely be desperate to keep him at Molineux.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

From what Sheth suggests, Arsenal will struggle to prise him away from Molineux this summer, and hopefully for Lage, Neto can go on to have another excellent, injury-free campaign.
