In a recent report, Football.London revealed that Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker Pedro Neto is on the radar of Arsenal. It has been mentioned that the Gunners are still showing interest in recruiting the Portuguese wide player from Wolves next year.
Neto’s Good Form At The Molineux Stadium This Season
The 23-year-old has enjoyed a decent campaign at the West Midlands club so far after putting in a run of influential displays on the right side of their attack. Neto has scored one goal and picked up seven assists in ten matches for Wolves this season in multiple competitions.
The Portuguese wing wizard has managed to catch the eye with his offensive contributions and deserves a ton of credit for averaging 1.8 shots, 2.5 key passes and 2.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even been accurate with his ball distribution as he has completed 83.4% of his attempted passes in the English top-flight (stats via whoscored).
Neto is under contract at the Molineux Stadium until the summer of 2027. Therefore, Wolves have no immediate need to let him leave this winter.
What Should Wolves Boss Gary O’Neil Do With Regards To Neto?
Neto is a good dribbler with the ball at his feet and can be a hard man to stop when he is running at full swing in the opponent’s half. He has got the vision to create some inviting chances for his teammates from the flanks and can shoot the ball purely and with venom from long range.
The Portuguese talent has chipped in by picking up his fair share of assists for Wolves this season. However, he needs to find a way to be more clinical in front of the opposition goal.
Neto mainly operates on the right-wing but can also serve as a left-sided wide player if told to do so by his manager. The Portuguese wing wizard’s versatility and skillset has made him an irreplaceable member of Wolves’ squad.
The talented wide player remains one of the first names in O’Neil’s teamsheet. Therefore, the West Midlands club should not entertain any offers for their star winger this January as he can help them push for a European spot in the Premier League this season.
