Arsenal are in the market for a new wide man this summer, in order to provide competition for Bukayo Saka with a return to the Champions League confirmed for next season.
Mikel Arteta is keen to add quality in depth to his team and with Reiss Nelson still yet to sign a new contract, bringing in a player to provide cover for Bukayo Saka is high up Arsenal’s to-do list ahead of next season.
One player the Gunners are looking at is Wolverhampton Wanderers winger, Pedro Neto, according to Football Insider.
Arsenal were reportedly interested in signing the winger last summer, but were put off by his £50million price tag.
Arsenal hold a long-term interest in the Portuguese forward, who has had some pretty bad luck with injuries over the last few seasons. However, since the appointment of Spanish coach Jules Lopetegui, he is expected to be one of his key players, and Wolves will look to keep him this summer.
If Arsenal do go in for Pedro Neto this summer, any bid is expected to be rejected from Wolves as Jules Lopetegui is a big fan of the 23-year-old and doesn’t want to lose the player ahead of next season. However every player has a price and if Arsenal want him, they’ll be confident they can get a deal done.
So far this season, the 23-year old Portuguese international has played 17 matches in the league for Wolves without any goal contributions, however, most of his appearances have come off the bench as he is recovering from a big knee and ankle injuries he suffered in the last two season, where he missed almost year and a half of football.
Signing Neto is a risk considering his injury record over the last year, however if Arsenal can get him for a price they’ll be happy with then it could work out a very smart investment if he can stay fit.
