Wolves transfer news: Pedro Neto situation 'completely quiet' after Arsenal interest

Wolves winger Pedro Neto’s situation is ‘completely quiet’ at the moment after interest from Arsenal last summer, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The youngster has yet to feature for the first-team since sustaining an ankle injury back in October.

Neto has been back in training, and actually did make the bench for the recent game against Southampton.

He played in the U21s game against Arsenal last week, but then didn’t make the matchday squad to face Bournemouth.

Lopetegui explained that he was still improving his fitness.

He will soon return for the first-team, and Wolves will hope he can make an impact straight away.

With Neto having no played for so long, there has been no chance for him to catch the attention of other clubs.

Romano has given an update about Neto, stating that it’s all quiet at the moment for him in terms of transfer interest.

He said (Caught Offside): “To clear up various rumours, Arsenal were interested in Pedro Neto last summer, but not Chelsea.

“At the moment the player’s situation is completely quiet. Also in January nothing was serious or concrete for Pedro. We have to wait for the summer, it depends on lot of factors but it’s definitely quiet now.”

Arsenal were heavily linked with Neto at the end of the last summer window.

But Wolves placed a huge asking price on the player, and never had any real intention of selling.

It is little surprise that there is nothing really going on in the background regarding Neto at the moment.

The 22-year-old has not played for Wolves’ first-team since October, and so other clubs are not going to be particularly interested right now.

Once he gets back into the team, then there will be potential for his stock to rise again.

Whether Arsenal will become interested again remains to be seen.

The Gunners bought Leandro Trossard in January, which seemingly reduces their need for a player like Neto.
