Wolves transfer news: Wolves have no intention of selling Pedro Neto to Arsenal

Wolves reportedly have zero intention of letting Pedro Neto join Arsenal.

The winger is thought to have emerged as a priority target for the Gunners at this late stage of the window.

Supposedly he is seen as a potential replacement for Nicolas Pepe, who could be set to join Nice.

But O Jogo report this morning that Wanderers have closed the door on Arsenal over the 22-year-old.

They say that the chances of him heading to the Emirates Stadium in the coming days are ‘almost nil’.

Earlier this week, it was claimed that Wolves value Neto at around £50 million.

Wolves want to keep Neto for at least another season, after the player signed a new contract back in March.

Last night, Bruno Lage commented on Neto and the speculation surrounding him after the club’s 2-1 win over Preston North End in the Carabao Cup second round.

He said (via Birmingham Mail): “I have heard that but nothing has come to us.

“It’s normal now, with the good players that we have. Teams are looking for good players in the same way we are looking for (Goncalo) Guedes, Matheus (Nunes), (Nathan) Collins. No one told me anything about any proposal.”

Neto started on the bench last night at Molineux.

He came on late in the second-half, replacing Joao Moutinho.

Pedro Neto to Arsenal is very unlikely

This is an encouraging claim from O Jogo, and one that isn’t all that surprising.

Wolves are right to be closing the door on Arsenal over Neto.

He’s a brilliant player with massive potential, and the club does not need to sell.

Given the inconvenience it would cause Wolves, Arsenal would have to make an absolutely huge offer.

Wolves are right to want to keep Neto for at least one more season. Potentially, he could really thrive this season following the change in formation at Molineux.
