Wolves transfer news: PSG eyeing swoop for Pedro Neto

PSG have reportedly added Pedro Neto to their list of summer transfer targets.

According to a report from the Daily Mail yesterday, the French giants are keen on the winger despite him only recently returning to action after a serious knee injury.

Neto returned for Wolves in February against Leicester City, after recovering from a broken patella.

He sustained the injury in April 2021, meaning he was on the sidelines for 10 months.

He finally made his first start for Wolves since the injury against Crystal Palace earlier this month.

Since returning, Neto has looked sharp. But he obviously has a long way to go before he gets to his pre-injury levels again.

PSG are now said to be monitoring his progress for the rest of the season.

Supposedly, they have a shortlist that features Neto, Leeds United’s Raphinha, and Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele.

Neto, a £16 million signing from Lazio, only signed a contract extension with Wolves earlier this month.

The club rewarded him for his hard work getting back to fitness, and he is now contracted to the club until 2027.

The claim about Neto comes after there were claims a few months ago that PSG were also keen on Rayan Ait-Nouri.

The Frenchman is enjoying a tremendous season, after turning his loan move permanent last summer.

Wolves need to show their ambition by keeping Pedro Neto, amid PSG interest

It is interesting to read of interest in Neto from PSG.

They are set to lose Kylian Mbappe, whose contract at the Parc des Prince expires at the end of the season.

They’ll need a new forward, and it seems Neto could be someone they plump for.

Thankfully, Wolves were able to tie Neto down to a new contract recently. That puts the club in a strong position.

Wanderers can demand a fortune, but really, Wolves will not entertain any offers for Neto this summer.

The youngster has absolutely huge potential, and was Wolves’ best player last season.

Keeping players like him around is vital if the club want to achieve anything.

There’s a good chance Neto will be back to his usual self ahead of 2022/23, and it would be madness to be thinking about offloading him.
