Should Arsenal pay the full price of £50m for Pedro Neto?

Wolves name the price tag of Pedro Neto

It was earlier confirmed by The Athletic’s David Ornstein that Arsenal see Pedro Neto as a transfer priority before the window shuts down in less than 10 days’ time.

Now, the price which Wolves will be demanding from interested suitors is believed to be £50m, according to The Sun reporter Daniel Cutts.

After Arsenal sat down for talks for their club-record signing Nicolas Pepe with their French counterparts OGC Nice, it became pretty much clear that they would certainly like to bring in a replacement.

With the Gunners only boasting four natural wingers in Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Pepe and Reiss Nelson, there was certainly need for an upgrade in the position. As the latter two have failed to make a serious impact at the Emirates Stadium.

In the shape of Neto, Mikel Arteta will have a pacey winger who is equally adept on both the flanks. At the age of 22, the Portuguese also comes with bags of potential.

The North London outfit are thought to be preparing an opening offer of £35 million for the youngster, who has made a reputation for himself, since joining Wolves in 2019.

The former Lazio man has made 95 appearances for The Wanderers, finding the net 11 times while assisting his teammates 12 times.

He is a player who can unlock defenses with his quick feet and smart thinking, something Nicolas Pepe has failed to show in an Arsenal jersey.

If the Gunners add Neto and the seriously-linked Youri Tielemans to the squad that is already at Arteta’s disposal, fans can only dream of things the team can achieve this season.

    1. We need to get rid of Pepe, Bellerin & AMN & possibly Nelson, plus we have the rising Marquinhos who has been super since he arrived playing in the u23s.

      Neto for £25m plus AMN or Nelson.

      Teilimans straight swap for Pepe since Leicester are interesting in our winger.

      That would be ideal and let Hector go to Barca or Betis for a small fee in installments if they don’t want to pay the whole fee of £8-£10m at once!

      10 days to go in the window, will maybe be a surprise or 2!!

  1. I will go for Tonali as a cover for Partey and not Tielemans.

    The Ukrainian Neymar to me is a better alternative than Pedro who dribbles looking to the ground unlike that guy

  2. Wrong priority.We currently have seven players including, ESR, Marquinhos and Nketiah who can play wide , indeed make that eight if you consider that Vieria is also proficient in that area.Our first priority should be an athletic, powerful CM/DM who can supplement Partey.Forget about Neto who runs with his head down and fails to see the bigger picture.Very quick with the ball at his feet but his decision making leaves a lot to be desired imo.

    1. Don’t rate Nketia on the wings and I think ESR plays better through the middle. I do like the look of Marquinhos though

  3. We currently have no fewer than 8 players who have some experience of playing on the wings.Apart from the 4 mentioned in the article, ESR,Marquhinos, Vieira and Nketiah have all featured in the wide attacking positions.The acquisition of another winger seems to me low priority when what we really need is an athletic powerhouse to back up/ use with Partey.As for Neto, while he is quick and tricky, he tends to run with his head down, and as such he is not aware of the big picture.His decision making is suspect and ,invariably his final ball let’s him down.In my opinion we do not need him and he would certainly not be on my shopping list.
