Arsenal have Pedro Neto trick up their sleeve as two-team transfer battle kicks off

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Pedro Neto, with the winger excelling in the Premier League for Wolves this season. And the Gunners could attempt to prise the 23-year-old away from Molineux on the cheap by offering the Black Country club Reiss Nelson on loan to sweeten the deal.

Wolves signed Neto from Lazio in the summer of 2019 after the player had made just five first-team appearances for the Italian club. The Portugal international was mainly used from the bench during his maiden campaign in England but became a regular starter during his second season under Nuno Espirito Santo.

However, the star suffered a serious knee injury in April 2021 and missed 10 months of action. He also suffered a spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury last season.

Neto started the current campaign in blistering form as he bagged one goal and eight assists in his side’s first 10 Premier League matches, before suffering a hamstring problem. And his form has reportedly persuaded Arsenal to target him in the New Year.
