Arsenal news: Boss makes transfer statement after £50M star tipped to make Emirates move
Wolves boss Gary O’Neil has opened up on the future of Pedro Neto, who has been tipped for a move to Arsenal.
Over the course of the summer transfer window – ARSENAL done some of the best business in the Premier League and signed players that will make them serious contenders for that Premier League title.
The likes of Declan Rice, Kai Havertz, Davud Raya and Jurrien Timber have all made their own impacts at the Emirates since the move over the summer, but Mikel Arteta wants to keep adding to his side in the coming transfer windows, which has led to reports Pedro Neto is wanted.
Arsenal reportedly admire the forward and see him as being able to provide competition for places up front, and after his impressive start to the new Premier League season, he is a man that Mikel Arteta wanted next.
WHAT IS THE LATEST.
According to reports on the Football Insider website, Mikel Arteta has told the Arsenal board that Pedro Neto is a man that he would like to add to the side, to give the attack a little more goal threat.
But O’Neill has opened up about his star man and said: “He’s incredibly happy at Wolves. He’s enjoying his football, he’s rediscovered some fantastic form.
“He’d had a tough couple of years with injury and form, and he’s performing at his best.
“So he’s incredibly settled, happy at the club, and we’re going to try and help him achieve some big things while he’s here.”
Neto has been tipped to provide competition for Bukayo Saka at right wing should Arsenal come knocking for a transfer.
Look, at the end of the day, if ARSENAL come calling in the January window Neto will be unable to turn down such a move, it would be a massive step up.
Whether or not he is needed at the Emirates is a different story, but he would add some depth to the squad.
