Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Pedro Neto is a name that will interest may clubs, following an impressive campaign for the 21-year-old Portugal international last season, which saw him manage 11 goal contributions in 31 League appearances, despite being played in an array of different positions last campaign.
Pedro Neto Summer Transfer Odds
Pedro Neto Summer Transfer Odds
Tottenham Hotspur Odds: 4/1
Tottenham Hotspur are the favourites to sign Neto this summer, which may be partially due to the fact that they are managed by former Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo who took the 21-year-old to Molineux from Braga in the summer of 2019, following two seasons on loan at Italian Serie A outfit, Lazio.
At present, Spurs are looking to increase the quality in their squad and Neto could do just that, as he is capable of playing up-front in 5-2-3 or 5-3-2 formation and is a well-trusted figure by the Portuguese manager, having scored winning goals against the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea last campaign in what was a tough season for the Molineux club who often struggled for goals, scoring 36 times.
Everton Odds: 6/1
Everton are also interested in Neto, as the Goodison Park club are looking to improve the quality of their wingers for the upcoming campaign following the departure of the likes of Josh King, who typically played as a rotational player for Richarlison on the left-hand-side, although the Brazilian did show at the Copa America, that he has the capability to pay on the right-flank, meaning that space could be made for Neto to flourish at Goodison Park.
Neto has shown in his time at Wolves, that he is a hard worker and can produce a high goal output considering how defensive the setup was at times at Molineux, which would likely mean that he is more than capable of doing a similar job at Everton, who have ambitions to push for a place in Europe next season.
Liverpool Odds: 8/1
Liverpool have also been linked with a potential move for Neto, as the likes of Sadio Mane is 29-year-old, meaning that the Anfield club will be looking for a long-term replacement for the Senegalese forward in the near future.
Neto would provide an ideal replacement in future seasons as his goal contributions numbers are good for someone of his age and his counter-attacking abilities are something that would fit in well with Liverpool’s aggressive attacking style, as they often tend to score goals via counter-attacks due to the pace and clinical nature of Mane and Mohamed Salah with Roberto Firmino often being involved.
Last summer, former Wolves teammate Diogo Jota made the move to Anfield following three years at Molineux and has shown his capabilities in his short time under Jurgen Klopp, equalling his best-ever league goal-scoring season in England with nine goals, despite only playing 19 times.
Arsenal Odds: 9/1
The final team on this list of clubs that are interested in making a move for Neto is Arsenal.
At present, the Gunners often play Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the left wing which in all truth is a waste in the Gabonese striker’s goalscoring capabilities, having seen him win the Golden Boot twice since joining Arsenal back in January 2018 from Borussia Dortmund.
Neto joining Mikel Arteta’s side could potentially see the end of this experiment and allow Aubameyang to play down the middle once again, shifting Alexandre Lacazette out of the first-team setup, with the Frenchman having just one year left on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium.
Something that could also be favourable for the Gunners is the potential which Neto has, as he could be signed for a cheaper fee than that which he could be worth in future years.
