Arsenal need to pay £60m to sign Pedro Neto

Arteta wants a more hostile atmosphere from Arsenal fans at the Emirates

Arsenal had a quiet January transfer window, as expected, but Mikel Arteta could be very busy once again next summer. 

The Gunners are in the mix of a three-horse title race involving Liverpool and Manchester City, and they are expected to challenge both of them until the very end.

While the club will be careful of spending within their limits, Arteta will definitely look to add more depth and quality to the side, as they are progressing steadily under his leadership.

One of the players who could be targeted next summer is Wolves forward Pedro Neto. According to a report from Evening Standard, Wolves could demand a fee of over £60million for the 23-year-old forward who has been in “sensational” form this season.

He was superb against both Manchester United and Chelsea in recent games and has attracted interest from heavyweight Premier League clubs including Arsenal.

Another big-money signing?

Wolves sold Matheus Nunes for £53m to Manchester City last summer, and they are likely to demand more for Neto.

The club have made well over £100m profit from player sales last summer, and if they can sell Neto for a high transfer fee, they will be in a good position to comply with Premier League profit and sustainability rules.

Neto has scored three goals and provided eight assists in 18 Premier League appearances this season, and he is being targeted by the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham as well.

Mikel Arteta is a long-term admirer of Neto, and the Gunners could make a move for him in the next summer transfer window. The north London club made Declan Rice their club-record signing in the summer window, and may well look to spend big again.

The Gunners have a wealth of attacking options, but there is always a room for quality players in the side.
