Premier League Clubs Assessing Pedro Neto’s Value
The winger’s development at Molineux has occasionally been hampered by injury, but he is currently regarded as one of the team’s most important players.
In 18 appearances across all competitions in 2023–24, he recorded three goals and ten assists, bringing his total since his debut in 2019 to 14 goals and 23 assists from 129 outings.
With a deal that keeps him with the West Midlands team until 2027, they will have the upper hand in deciding Neto’s future.
Though they have strengthened this during the last two transfer windows, Wolves are still in a position where they must make sure they meet all FFP rules.
Wolves are aware that, even though they will have more room to spend during the summer, they could stand to gain in the long run by making the most of Neto’s value at the end of the campaign.
Football Insider reports that some interested teams have discovered they will need to shell out more than £50 million to sign the 23-year-old.
According to the source, Wolves would need to pay £60 million if they are to get a significant amount of serious interest in signing the star.
In light of the fact that Jurgen Klopp will be leaving Anfield at the end of the season, and the uncertainty surrounding Mohamed Salah’s future at Anfield, Liverpool has emerged as the latest team to be linked to Neto.
Manchester City has also been connected to a move for Neto, but in order to make room in their roster, they would also need to part ways with one of their present occupants.
Wolves have experience doing business with both teams; in 2020, Diogo Jota moved to Liverpool, while Matheus Nunes was sold to City last summer.
According to reports, Arsenal is a serious candidate for Neto and is debating whether to make a big-money deal to satisfy their initial interest in the playmaker.
It was reported earlier this week that the Gunners dispatched a scout to observe Neto play on Saturday against Brentford, a match that Wolves lost 2-0.
