Fabrizio Romano provides an update on Pedro Neto amid Tottenham and Arsenal links

Fabrizio Romano has said that clubs are still waiting for Wolves to decide on an asking price for rumoured Tottenham target Pedro Neto.

There have been a whole host of reports over the last month talking up Tottenham’s interest in Neto, with several outlets suggesting that the Wolves star is near the top of Ange Postecoglou’s wishlist (Independent).

Spurs are not thought to be alone in their admiration of the 23-year-old, with the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Manchester City and Manchester United also said to be watching his situation closely (GiveMeSport).

Football.London suggested a little over a week ago that despite Neto’s latest injury, which is expected to rule him out for the rest of the season, Wolves hope to sell the player for more than the £53m they got for Matheus Nunes last summer.

Wolves have yet to name a price for Pedro Neto

Romano has now confirmed that Neto is one of the wingers near the top of Mikel Arteta’s wishlist ahead of the summer.

However, he made it clear that a move is not advanced, with the Gunners and the other clubs yet to learn how much Gary O’Niel’s men would want for the Portuguese star.

Romano told CaughtOffside: “Arsenal have some wingers in their sights for the summer. But while it’s normal to see a long list of names linked with clubs in this situation, who’s really emerging as the main options on Arsenal’s list?

“Pedro Neto is a player Arsenal like and have looked at before, but we have to wait for Wolves to decide initial price tag to understand what Arsenal, Tottenham and more clubs will decide to do.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I do not think too many clubs would be too keen to pay £50m or more for Neto, given his injury record. Tottenham might perhaps want to structure the deal based on appearance-based add-ons to protect themselves as they would not want another Ryan Sessegnon-type situation.
