Journalist claims Everton have held interest in Wolves star Pedro Neto 'for some time'

Another day, another player being linked with an exit from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Since the 2020/21 season ended and Nuno Espirito Santo departed, that seems to be what all the talk has been about.

Rui Patricio, Ruben Neves, Ruben Vinagre, Dion Sanderson, Rafa Mir, Joao Moutinho, Adama Traore have all been written about as possible sales for the club in the coming transfer window.

Pedro Neto is also being linked with a move away, and apparently Everton are keen to land the 21-year-old.

The Toffees are being strongly linked with Nuno, and apparently he could try and take Neto to Goodison Park.

Speaking on The Transfer Window podcast, journalist Duncan Castles said: “Everton’s finances are not great, which is what Nuno wants to know from Everton which is what degree of spending he’ll be allowed to do, what changes he’ll be allowed to make.

“One individual mentioned here is Pedro Neto. He would like to take him to Everton, in an ideal world.

“Everton have been interested in Neto for some time and Neto is available for sale this summer and one of a number of players Wolves have put on the market in an attempt to raise cash in order to rebuild the team.”

Neto to Everton surely unlikely

Everton may want Neto, but him heading to Goodison Park feels highly unlikely.

Wolves will surely want to keep hold of Neto for at least one more season, give his amazing showings in 2020/21.

He has the capacity to be special, and Wolves can’t sell too early before he potentially sees his value sky-rocket.

Him going to Everton would not make much sense.

If Nuno becomes manager there, perhaps that will be a lure.

Realistically though it would be a bit of a sideways step, for a player who could very easily play for a top club in Europe.
