- Arsenal are top of the Premier League table following unbeaten start to season
Arsenal are targeting Wolves’ Pedro Neto as they look to add a winger before the deadline.
However, the 22-year-old is valued at over £50million with Arsenal looking to pay around £35m. They have also asked about Moussa Diaby at Bayer Leverkusen and Yerry Pino of Villarreal but Neto is keen to join if agreement can be found on a fee.
Arsenal have been in discussions with agent Jorge Mendes over the Portugal international for a while, and are hoping a deal can be agreed.
Arsenal are keen on signing Wolves winger Pedro Neto this summer following negotiations
Mikel Arteta’s side have identified the 22-year-old as a top target after talks with Jorge Mendes
Mendes is held in high-regard by the Wolves hierarchy, although talks with the two clubs are said to have been separate.
Wolves are said to have no intention of selling the 22-year-old this summer, while the winger also signed a contract extension in March, tying him down until 2027.
The asking price may price the Gunners out of a move.
The forward has started all three of Bruno Lage’s side’s opening Premier League games, with Wanderers remaining winless.
The Portugal international boasts 23 goal contributions in 95 appearances for Wolves
Gunners are top of the Premier League table after three successive victories at start of season
Neto has been a key figure since his arrival from Braga in 2019 and has made 95 appearances for Wolves, boasting 23 goal contributions.
However, potential suitors for Neto have grown hope after Wolves signed attackers Goncalo Guedes and Matheus Nunes this summer.
Wolves’ asking price for the winger remains unclear but the Gunners will be limited with their finances after the arrivals of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Fabio Vieira.
Meanwhile, Arsenal held further talks with Nice on Monday about Nicolas Pepe’s proposed loan to Nice. Arsenal right-back Brooke Norton-Cuffy, 18, has joined Championship side Rotherham on a season loan.
