Arsenal target reacts to rumours linking him to the club

Pedro Neto has reacted to the rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal in this transfer window.

The Portuguese winger is one of the finest attackers in the Premier League where he plays for Wolves.

They have assembled a strong team and Neto has stood out as one of the best forwards in the division.

Arsenal has had a busy summer transfer window, but the Gunners remain committed to buying more players.

Several reports have linked them with a move for Neto and he is seen as a replacement for Nicolas Pepe who seems to be leaving.

The 22-year-old knows about the rumours and in his response, he insists he is focused on giving his best to Wolves.

He said, as quoted by 90Mins:

“I always like to hear this sort of stuff but I’m focused on my job here because I’m feeling very good here.

“The things you hear make you work even more. It’s good for you and your mentality to know that people know your value. It gives me more hunger to work harder.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Neto will bring more to our attack and competition from a top player like him means we will have quality in depth.

However, he could limit the game time of Bukayo Saka if he moves ahead on the pecking order.

While that would be good news, would Mikel Arteta want to bench Saka for him?

  1. If we have a standby or one that could challenge Saka that would be best for both Arsenal and Saka. Saka is yet maturing and need to learn to be an Assist and not necessarily a ball hog or do it all by myself. That will also help to curb any tendency of arrogance. That temptation could lead him into a zone wherein some good talents drifted into and suffered avoidable setbacks. My take? the asking price for Neto should not be what is overlying out of our range. Yes, we need an extra man there even in case of injury.

  2. As a wolves supporter for over 60 years i find it quite depressing that Wolves should even contemplate selling one of their young, up-and-coming star prospects, when he’s fit its a delight to see him play. Leave him alone to stay at Wolves and help make us a great club again.

    1. I have always had a crush for Wolves, but in my heart there’s only two clubs Brann from Norway and Arsenal. You even got our fan favourite Seyi Olofinjana, bought from Brann in 2004 😉

      Arsenal has always been great, but we want to get better and compete for silverware. Now we are following in the footsteps of The Beatles and need a little help from our friends 🫶

  3. The gaffer plan is clear, Neto is less like Saka and more like Martinelli and both are in the mould of Luis Suarez.

    Both Martinelli and Neto seems hungry and brave, with a very direct and lethal approach to goal, they have Alex Sanchez workman like attitude. Pay the fifty quid and get it over the line

  4. We are not going to pay £50mill plus for Neto and that is plain, surely!

    I dont doubt we’d like him, but he is not coming. Too expensive by far for us, sad to relate.


  5. There is nothing wrong in buying Nato, our bench should be as strong as the eleven in the filed. What we need is winning our games, I think that is what every player should have in his heart.

  6. I think He’s been quoted @50m euros not pounds,
    If Arsenal signs Neto, it means Smith-Rowe might be the player to leave soon, Neto and Saka can play both wings plus Saka can play midfield, besides we have enough games to go round and 2 halves to burn our opponents out.

  7. This interview was from the summer when Man Utd was interested,nothing to do with this new Arsenal interest

      1. You are not thoughtful enough remember this is a premier league which is very tough and distressful.These players are not made of stone! They need rest and revitalization for the coming games. Besides we need stong bench to rival the best clubs in epl the likes of man city, Liverpool, Chelsea Tottenham etc

  8. He will be a good addition and will push the best in Saka. Also Saka is human and he needs to be rested bkoz he is under too much pressure from everyone who love Arsenal. Everyone wants Saka in but if we get this boy then Saka will be relieved from too much pressure

  9. Oh! It would be lovely if Neto could join Arsenal and our bench would be strong enough to rival the best clubs in EPL the likes of man city, Chelsea and Tottenham. Those who say could limit other young players to play are not thoughtful enough, this is a premier league which is very tough and many games to be played These players are not made of stone! They sometimes need rest and revitalise themselves for the coming games. For me it would be wonderful and i woud be overjoyed as an arsenal fan. If possible beside Neto i would love to see Wilfried Zaha joining.
