According to Football Insider, Arsenal and Liverpool have been informed that they will have to pay a large amount to capture Wolverhampton Wanderers star Pedro Neto in the forthcoming transfer window.
The Gunners have been considering signing a new right-winger to support Bukayo Saka for some time, but they have yet to make a decision.
Neto was previously listed as a significant target for the North London club, but they were unable to sign him because Wolves were unwilling to allow their star player depart.
However, it has lately been rumored that Neto is eager to advance in his career and may leave the Molineux Stadium next year.
Arsenal are interested in signing Neto to improve their forward department, according to Fabrizio Romano, and have been monitoring his growth in recent months ahead of a prospective move.
However, it has been suggested that getting Neto’s signature will be difficult for the Gunners because Liverpool are also interested in him as a potential replacement for Mohamed Salah, who has been strongly linked with a move away from Anfield.
According to Football Insider, Wolves do not want to let their star player leave on the cheap and will demand a ‘large’ fee if they are forced to cash-in.
Neto’s current deal expires in four years, putting Wolves in a great position to demand a high amount to offload their best player next year. As a result, if Arsenal or Liverpool formalize their interest, they will have to pay a lot of money to get his signing.
Neto has had a strong start to the season after returning from injury, scoring one goal and contributing four assists in seven league games.
Neto is a good player with a lot of potential, so if either Arsenal or Liverpool can get him in the forthcoming transfer window, it would be a huge coup for them.
It would be intriguing to watch who eventually wins the race to get Neto if the Gunners and the Reds go head-to-head over this deal next year.
