Intermediaries representing Wolves forward Pedro Neto have made clubs aware that he is “available for the right price” this summer, according to 90min.com ‘s Graeme Bailey.
The journalist claims that Chelsea (along with Arsenal and Manchester United) are now weighing up whether to make a move for the Portuguese international:
Wolves’ Pedro Neto could become deadline target for a number of Premier League clubs. Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United amongst clubs informed about his potential availability. @90min_Football https://t.co/bTeK0t5wsV — Graeme Bailey (@GraemeBailey) August 16, 2022
In terms of the actual asking price, reports have suggested that Wolves may hold out for around £50m, which is the same valuation as Everton’s Anthony Gordon. On the face of it, Neto would probably be the better option, but it must be pointed out that the 22-year- old has recently returned from a serious knee injury, which kept him out for most of last season.
Manager Thomas Tuchel may feel that signing the Portuguese star now would be too much of a risk, knowing that there is no guarantee that he will recover his best form. Since returning to first-team action earlier this year, Neto has played 15 competitive matches, scoring just once.
