Report claims Liverpool are tracking Wolves star Neto

Liverpool are keen on Wolves winger Pedro Neto, according to a report by Goal.

They claim that Neto is among the names Jurgen Klopp likes as he considers how to improve his attack.

The report says that there won’t be a bid from Anfield this summer because of Neto’s injury which ended his season early.

It’s hardly surprising Neto is attracting admiring glances after the campaign he had.

We could fill the rest of the article by looking back at the praise Neto received last season. Wolves fans know how good he is.

Alan Shearer called him a ‘real talent’ in February, around the same time his BBC colleague Garth Crooks raved about him.

Jamie Carragher thinks he’s going to be a ‘superstar’ and fellow Sky pundit Graeme Souness says he’s destined for great things in this country.

Nuno Espirito Santo was of course the man who brought him to Molineux and called him ‘very talented’ last December. The praise keeps raining in.

Will Wolves sell Neto?

Well he won’t be going to Anfield this summer, as mentioned. So any move would be in January at the earliest.

Liverpool signed Diogo Jota last summer, while Ki-Jana Hoever came the other way.

So there’s a working relationship between the clubs. But that doesn’t mean Neto is set to follow in Jota’s footsteps.

Bruno Lage will be charged with getting Wolves back into Europe, and when fit, Neto will be as important as anyone in the squad to getting there.

He’ll be a key player at Molineux and if Wolves get on an upward trajectory again next season, why would he want to leave?
