Arsenal begin negotiations with Wolves for Pedro Neto

Arsenal have reportedly made contact with Wolves over the potential signing of Pedro Neto. The Gunners are looking to bolster their squad with the expected departure of Nicolas Pepe.

Arsenal have made several signings this summer, but the Gunners are still looking to bolster their squad before the summer transfer window closes.

A look at the Premier League shows a lot of surprises. Despite the season just in its early stages, it is rare to see Arsenal sitting on top of the log. The Gunners have won their first three matches and want to consolidate on that position. With a few signings this summer, Arsenal looks like a different side, but Mikel Arteta still wants to make some additions for extra depth.

Despite the arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus, Arteta feels there is a need to bolster the midfield and has asked for the services of a midfielder. The Gunners are currently in talks with Wolves for the signature of Pedro Neto.

Arsenal in talks for Neto

The Gunners are reportedly negotiating with Wolverhampton Wanderers for Pedro Neto. There is plenty of hope that the deal could sail through, but there are also chances it could get complicated.

The Athletic reports that discussions are underway, but it is far from concluded, with a few snags expected to be a thorn in the flesh. The asking price for the 22-year-old could make negotiations complicated. Arsenal remain resolute in their desire to sign the Portuguese player.

Wolves have not mentioned any fee yet

Mikel Arteta deserves praise for the work he is doing in the Emirates. The Spanish gaffer has turned Arsenal into a tough nut to crack, but it is still early days and plenty of time to test the resolve of the north London club. It is a marathon, not a sprint, and anything can still happen.

Perhaps it explains why Arsenal wants extra additions to the squad. With Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool struggling to get into full gear, Arsenal want to get far ahead as quickly as possible. The pursuit of Neto is still in its infancy, with no figure mentioned yet, but Arsenal is aware that it will not be a walk in the park.

Nicolas Pepe is about to join OGC Nice, and it has forced Arsenal into bolstering his position. Arteta is not looking for just any player. He wants one that suits his system well. With doubts over their interest in Neto, David Ornstein of The Athletic has confirmed that Arsenal is fully interested in the Portugal international.

Neto signed a new deal with Wolves that elapses in 2027 and could complicate the possibility of Arsenal signing the Portuguese. Wolves are not interested in selling the youngster but would demand a significant amount to let him join the Gunners.

Arsenal are also interested in signing Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans.
