Arsenal transfer news: Mikel Arteta interested in Pedro Neto move
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is looking to strengthen his side in the January window with Pedro Neto high up on the transfer wish list.
The Wolves forward has been outstanding for his side so far this campaign, registering the joint most assists, alongside Mohamed Salah.
Only Bukayo Saka has created more chances than the 23-year-old so far as he has established himself as one of Gary O’Neil’s most pivotal players.
This has caught the eye of many managers across the continent including Arteta, who has a long-standing interest in the Portuguese starlet.
Neto was heavily linked with a move to North London last summer before sustaining an injury and has revealed in the past that he is a childhood Arsenal fan.
With injuries to Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard alongside a growing need to bring in a backup for Bukayo Saka, the versatile forward could be the perfect fit for Arteta’s side.
According to the Sunday Mirror, the Spaniard is considering making a move in the upcoming January window. It is clear that Arsenal want to add more firepower to their side with Ivan Toney also on the shortlist for the Gunners.
Neto signed a new contract in March 2022, extending his deal until 2027, making a potential approach a very expensive one.
Arsenal have started this campaign strongly, currently sitting second in the league, but may need more if they want to dethrone Manchester City.
