Arsenal are ahead of both Liverpool and Tottenham in race to sign £80m player this summe

Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have all been linked with a move to sign Pedro Neto this summer.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers winger is one of the most exciting wide players in the Premier League. He is a tremendous player, and there’s a huge chance he could move to a bigger club soon. Arsenal are reportedly leading the race for his signature.

Arsenal are the favourites to sign Pedro Neto

Mikel Arteta has built a tremendous squad at Arsenal, but there are still a few areas that need improvement this summer.

A prolific striker will be the priority, while the Gunners need some help in midfield too, especially if one of Jorginho or Thomas Partey ends up leaving.

One other position Arsenal should strengthen is out wide. Bukayo Saka has no like-for-like backup on the right flank, and that is not ideal at all because it forces him to play almost every game.

Arteta will want to address that issue, and GiveMeSport claim today that Arsenal are the favourites to sign Pedro Neto from Wolves this summer.

The report reveals that although Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Manchester City are all interested in the Portuguese attacker, it’s the Gunners who are leading the race to sign him.

Neto, however, will cost an absolute fortune. Wolves are holding out for £80 million for their star winger, who has scored three goals and provided 11 assists since the start of the season.

The report further adds that Neto is unlikely to ‘push’ for a move away this summer because ‘he has built an affinity with Wolves’ and has a lot of respect for the club’s hierarchy and fans for supporting him during his difficult moments.

Pedro Neto’s injury history is a concern

On the pitch, Pedro Neto checks all the boxes for Arsenal and the other sides linked with a move to sign him this summer. Fans would love for him to join their club.

The Portugal international is terrific on the ball, is a brilliant dribbler, can score goals and provide assists. He can play on both wings too and the fact that he is still only 24 means he will only get better in the coming years. He really is a special player.

However, Neto’s injury record is not great. Since April 2021, the Wolves winger has missed 88 games for club and country due to injuries. He limped off with what appeared to be a hamstring injury against Fulham last weekend as well.

That is a big concern for interested clubs, especially as he will cost a lot of money this summer.
