Wolves could face a battle to land the attacker in the January transfer window

Wolves starlet Pedro Neto is reportedly attracting attention from Aston Villa at the moment. The Portugal international, who has four caps under his belt for his country so far, has started the new Premier League season in sharp form.

According to a report by 90min, Unai Emery’s side have ‘checked in’ on his progress. They aren’t the only name in the frame though ahead of the next transfer window, with Arsenal said to be ‘long-term admirers’ along with La Liga giants Atletico Madrid.

Wolves will be eager to keep Neto for as long as they can and especially won’t want to lose him to a rival like Villa. His contract at Molineux expires in June 2027 meaning he is still tied down for a while yet.

Neto was linked with a move away last year and had this to say, as per The Times: “I always like to hear this sort of stuff but I’m focused on my job here because I’m feeling very good here. The things you hear makes you work even more, it’s good for you & your mentality to know people know your value.

“The dream of any player is to play in the Champions League. I want to help this club to go higher and higher because I think we have that potential with the way we work, the way we sign players, the way we try to arrive there.”

As Neto alluded to, his desire is to play in the Champions League in the future. That would initially rule out Aston Villa, but would open the door for Arsenal after they finished 2nd behind City last term.

Wolves landed the 23-year-old back in 2019 from Braga. He has since made 118 appearances in all competitions and has chipped in with 12 goals.
