Neto vs Diaby: Romano reveals Arsenal’s preferred target

Reports have linked Arsenal with a move for an exciting winger in the last few days of the transfer window.

Mikel Arteta has completely given up on Nicolas Pepe and they could sign a replacement in this transfer window.

Two names have been on the Gunners’ radar for some time – Moussa Diaby and Pedro Neto.

The latter plays for Wolves in the Premier League and he has proven his class since he has been in England.

The former plays for Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga and he has been one of the finest players in his position in European football.

Either of them will do a good job at the Emirates, but transfer insider, Fabrizio Romano, says the Gunners are more interested in Neto.

“Pedro Neto is the main target as new winger,” Romano said on the latest episode of the Here We Go podcast.

“I’m told that Mikel Arteta is a big fan of Pedro Neto. Edu is exploring this possibility since long time.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Neto has done a good job in the Premier League so far and that could be the reason we want him more than Diaby.

A move for him means he will remain in a competition he understands very well, and that should make his adaptation easier and faster.

  1. I think Neto is gonna be a wonderful addition having gotten premier league experience personally I would go for Neto

    1. Except that he will NOT be an addition at all, as we cannot afford him and so he will NOT be coming . No doubt we WOULD like him, but liking and getting are two very different matters, my over optimistic friend.

      1. Are you Arsenal’s cashier or accountant? How did you know Arsenal can’t afford him?

        I always wonder how some fans confidently point out who Arsenal can and cannot afford.

  2. Neto is a battle hardened campaigner in the premier league, so he has a distinctive edge over Diaby.

    Am told the kid is desperate to join us.

    1. Believe me that’s not the case just what media are saying,he loves the wolves and is knows the fans love him.

  3. The problem with neto is the price, for a position where we have our best player. If, for example, arsenal is thinking about pay 50mm for neto and 25mm for tielemans, i think it could be better idea to pay 35mm that OL wants for paqueta, and get a cheaper winger. Even when we need more the winger probably, i think paqueta could finish in our starting eleven and being a star player. I dont see that in a LW meantime we have saka.

  4. I think Arsenal need a top right winger now so they can bed him into the side, since I believe Saka will leave in the January window to Man City).

    We might be able to afford Neto once Pepe and AMN ar off the books, but we might need to sell Rob Holding too.

    However, I still think we will need a really good DM this season and maybe we should get that position filled, and let the purchase of a winger wait until January.

    Just my thoughts

    PS I will say one more time ESR really really needs a move!!!!
