Report: Club are strongly saying their 'brilliant' player is not for sale, with Arsenal trying to sign him
Reports suggested yesterday that Arsenal are willing to pay £35 million for Neto this summer. But it seems that Wolves have no intention of selling one of their star players.
The 22-year-old is yet to score or assist this season as Bruno Lage’s men have struggled to score goals.
Neto only made 13 appearances in the Premier League for Wolves last season after a long lay-off with injury. But the Portuguese winger was considered as one of the brightest young talents in the league just two seasons ago.
And the Wolves man has caught the eye of Mikel Arteta as he looks to bolster his attacking options this summer.
Neto is not for sale
The Midlands club believe that they will be helping the player get back to his best this season.
Neto signed a new five-year contract just after returning from injury last season and Wolves feel that puts them in a strong position.
The Wanderers think Neto will be worth a lot more in the future and that they can make a big profit once he reaches his full potential.
People at the club believe he has a higher ceiling than Liverpool forward Diogo Jota, who the club sold back in 2020.
It seems that Arsenal will face a tough task in bringing Neto to North London this summer, especially after the player signed a new long-term deal recently.
Arteta is in the market to bolster his attacking options and the club missed out on Raphinha to Barcelona earlier this summer.
Neto would certainly provide depth and competition to the Gunners’ front-three. The young winger is trying to get back to his best following a long spell on the sidelines, but has shown his capability in the Premier League for Wolves.
