Portuguese winger Pedro Neto has been on fire this season, troubling left backs across the Premier League. He has added 3 goals and 11 assists to his sparkling displays, garnering attention from the big boys: among them Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United. Journalist Dean Jones confirmed these rumours while speaking to Givemesport.

He proceeded to comment that were he a Wolves fan, he would enjoy Pedro Neto because there is a good chance these are his last months in the gold and black.

Wolves certainly will not easily let go of the 23-year-old winger although Financial Fair Play may force their hand. He has been absolutely influential to their push towards surprise European football next season.

Arsenal have been the most interested in him, although playing time will be difficult to find as Arsenal have that right-wing comfortably filled by their star boy Bukayo Saka. Neto can also be deployed as a left-winger, or just behind the striker.

Arsenal have these positions already filled by Martinelli and Odegaard, further reducing how much game time Neto will be accorded at the Emirates. Leandro Trossard who fills in for Martinelli may also be preferred to Neto on account of him being right footed cutting in from the left.

Pedro Neto may be better suited at Tottenham, as their wingers have been massively inconsistent all season and can do with a bit of competition. Dejan Kulusevski is currently on 6 goals and 2 assists for the season, and his understudy Brennan Johnson is on 3 goals and 6 assists.

Spurs captain Son Heung-min is the only winger who has consistently produced for the London club, producing 13 goals and 6 assists. It is clear to see they do need some competition and quality to their flanks. Pedro Neto would be a good addition to their ranks if Spurs are willing to part with his around 40 million euros valuation.

The ideal destination would however be Manchester United. The Red Devils struggle to find consistent output on that right wing has been there for all to see.

Antony’s inconsistency and lack of final product has been a headache for Erik ten Hag especially after splashing 100 million euros on him. He is still yet to register a goal contribution all season and that is completely unacceptable for a Man United winger.

Argentine starlet Alejandro Garnacho has shown some promise the few times Erik has deployed him on the right, but he is naturally a left-winger. Pedro Neto would be a fantastic signing coming in from that right coupled with his intelligence to play short quick passes with an even more intelligent Bruno Fernandes.
