Wolves boss Lage responds to Arsenal’s interest in Pedro Neto

The Portuguese tactician has moved to play the situation down

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Bruno Lage has, on Tuesday, provided an update on the future of transfer-linked winger Pedro Neto.

Portuguese international Neto has of course seen his name cast into the spotlight over the course of the last 48 hours.

This comes after the 22-year-old was identified as a prime transfer target on the part of one of Wolves’ Premier League rivals.

The outfit in question? Arsenal.

As per a number of reliable sources, amid their ongoing search for reinforcements out wide, the powers that be on the red half of north London have turned their attentions towards Neto as potential competition for first-choice pairing Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

Not only that, but negotiations with the powers that be at Molineux are understood to have been underway for over a month now.

Speaking after watching his side book their spot in the 3rd round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of his transfer-linked attacker was put to Wolves boss Bruno Lage.

The Portuguese, though, was keen to keep his cards close to his chest.

In an obvious effort to play the situation down, Lage assured that, to date, he has not been informed of any developments towards an upcoming exit for Neto:
