Arsenal now willing to pay £35m to sign 'outstanding' player before deadline day - journalist
Pedro Neto has started all three of Wolves’ opening Premier League fixtures this season.
The 22-year-old has yet to register a goal or assist and his side have struggled so far, picking up just a single point.
Arsenal are willing to pay £35m for Neto
In contrast to Wolves’ start to the season, Arsenal are currently top of the Premier League after three straight wins.
Mikel Arteta has already come up with a winning formula, and has yet to make a single change to his starting line-up across any of Arsenal’s first three games.
Bringing in Neto, who is comfortable on either wing, would give Arteta a much more natural option out wide.
Speaking on Sky Sports back on September 25th 2021, Tim Sherwood called Neto a ‘really outstanding player, and the young forward was one of Wolves’ best players in the 2020/21 season.
However, he suffered an awful knee injury towards the end of the season against Fulham that kept him out for ten months.
He returned in February this year and has shown glimpses of his past form, however, the attacking players around him have also struggled in that time.
The Gunners also look set to let one of their wide players go this summer, with Arteta suggesting that Nicolas Pepe could leave on loan, with Nice interested in his services.
With Arsenal’s squad nearly looking complete, Neto could be the final piece in the puzzle as Arteta looks to guide his side back to the Champions League.
