Arsenal is said to be interested in Pedro Neto, who may be allowed to leave if Wolverhampton Wanderers sign Goncalo Guedes.
According to 90 minutes, Arsenal is interested in signing Pedro Neto because Mikel Arteta is looking for a wide attacker before the summer transfer window closes. The Premier League club agreed on a deal with Valencia for Goncalo Guedes, which could allow the 22-year-old Wolverhampton Wanderers winger to leave the Molineux.
Arsenal may intensify their search for a new wide attacker before the summer transfer deadline, as Mikel Arteta is eager to add quality to his squad. More sales are expected, with Nicolas Pepe among those reportedly on the transfer list.
If the Gunners can sell some of their wide players, such as Pepe and Reiss Nelson, they may be able to re-enter the market for a new winger. The plan is to bring in someone who will improve Arsenal’s squad while also providing cover for Bukayo Saka on the right side.
So far, many players have been linked with a move, with recent reports claiming that Arsenal is plotting a last-ditch move for Moussa Diaby. However, the Bayer Leverkusen attacker’s price tag may force them to look away, although the Gunners have previously been open to paying big money for a new winger.
Recent reports suggest Cody Gakpo is also on Arsenal’s, but he could cost around €40 million. Arsenal has long been keen on signing the Dutchman, although they might have to battle Manchester United, who could enter the chase for the PSV Eindhoven star.
The latest on Arsenal’s search for a winger links the Gunners with a possible move for Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Pedro Neto. The 22-year-old Portuguese international has been on the radar of the north London club for quite some time, but Arteta evaluated other options.
Recent reports link Arsenal with a move for Neto, believing Wolves could allow the 22-year-old to depart from the Molineux. The stories have emerged after the Premier League club agreed on a deal with Valencia for Goncalo Guedes in the last few days.
Signed from Lazio in 2019 for €18 million, Pedro Neto has seen his stock rise in the Premier League after consistent performances for Wolves. He also signed a new contract back in March until 2027, which allows Bruno Lage’s side to get a reasonable price in the market.
Whether Arsenal is genuinely interested in the 22-year-old winger remains to be seen, although, from a stylistic perspective, they already have Gabriel Martinelli. The Brazilian wide man is similar in style to Neto so Arteta might look at a player with a different profile
