Arsenal still keen to sign ‘incredible’ Premier League winger with eight assists this season

Arsenal are going into the January transfer window with Pedro Neto still on their radar, but there is a question mark over whether they will actually make a move for the Wolves star.

The Gunners know the importance of the January transfer window after agonisingly missing out on the Premier League title this season.
Pedro Neto is a player who has been heavily linked with Arsenal over the last couple of windows. When the Wolves winger is at his best, he is an ‘incredible‘ player.

Arsenal remain admirers of Pedro Neto

There were even suggestions that Mikel Arteta wanted to sign the £70 million-rated Neto even more than Ivan Toney. But perhaps that may not quite be the case heading into the window.
According to a report from The Athletic, Arsenal remain admirers of Neto. However, a wide forward is not the priority for next month, as things stand.

The Athletic notes that the Portuguese is very close to returning for Wolves after sustaining a hamstring injury in the draw with Newcastle in October.

Winger could potentially be a brilliant signing

It was a devastating blow when Neto pulled up against the Magpies. He had started the season in sensational form, providing eight assists in 10 games in the Premier League.
He was three assists away from matching his entire tally from his previous 91 games in the division during his career (via Transfermarkt). So he will be desperate to pick up where he left off upon his return.

Plenty of Arsenal fans would be delighted if they managed to sign Neto to provide cover and competition for Bukayo Saka.

The Arsenal forward line has been less impressive this season, with Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Odegaard scoring nine league goals between them.

So it would certainly be a boost if the club could now find a way to agree a deal with Wolves for Neto.
