Wolves manager Gary O’Neil has provided a crucial injury update, hinting at the imminent return of Pedro Neto against Manchester City this weekend.

Injuries have plagued Wolves throughout the 2024 season, leaving the squad stretched thin with key players sidelined. The recent return of Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-Chan has provided a boost, yet several stars continue to remain on the sidelines, necessitating the involvement of academy talents to bolster squad depth.

However, amidst these setbacks, there’s a glimmer of hope as Pedro Neto, who has endured his fair share of injury woes this season, edges closer to a return. The winger, sidelined since March with a hamstring injury sustained against Fulham, has been undergoing rehabilitation with uncertainty looming over his season’s remainder.

Initial fears of Neto’s season-ending injury have been dispelled, with recent updates from the Wolves camp suggesting a potential return to action. Gary O’Neil, in a press conference, confirmed Neto’s return to first-team training, fueling optimism among fans.

Journalist Liam Keen’s report further bolstered hopes, quoting O’Neil’s statement that “Neto has a chance of returning for the Man City match” on Saturday.

Meanwhile, in a twist of fate, Arsenal find themselves in a unique position regarding their summer transfer plans. With the untimely injury sidelining Neto, the Gunners now have a clearer picture to assess their pursuit of the Wolves star.


Neto’s impressive performance this season, marked by 11 assists in 23 appearances, has undoubtedly captured Arsenal’s attention. However, concerns loom over his injury record, with the Portuguese forward enduring four major injuries since the 2020/21 season, including two hamstring setbacks this campaign alone.

Despite the setbacks, Neto’s consistent performance amidst injury adversity underscores his potential as a valuable addition to Arsenal’s squad. Mikel Arteta now faces a pivotal decision regarding Neto’s pursuit, which could significantly shape the club’s summer transfer strategy.

Whether Neto emerges as Arsenal’s prime target or not, Arteta can now make informed decisions to bolster the squad ahead of the upcoming transfer window. With the injury cloud providing clarity, Arsenal’s transfer plans take a decisive step forward as they weigh their options in the pursuit of strengthening the team for the future.
