Report: Chelsea now alerted to 22-year-old player Guardiola thinks is 'incredible', he may be available
Chelsea have reportedly been alerted to the fact that Wolverhampton Wanderers star Pedro Neto may be available to sign this summer.
According to 90min, intermediaries have informed a number of sides that the 22-year-old Wolves player could be prized away from Molineux Stadium for the right price.
The report claims Chelsea, along with rivals Manchester United and Arsenal, have been made aware of Neto’s situation. Apparently, all three clubs are looking out to sign a right-sided winger
It’s not stated how much Wolves would want for one of their most exciting youngsters, who’s still under contract with them until 2027.
Chelsea alerted to Pedro Neto
If Neto really is available this summer, it won’t be a surprise to see a top team take a gamble on him.
The left-footed winger doesn’t stand out when you see his overall Wolves record of 11 goals and 12 assist in 94 appearances. However, the Portugal international definitely passes the eye test when you watch him play.
He’s a quick, tricky and direct forward that’s tipped for great things by the Wolves fanbase.
Neto’s already had to overcome a long-term injury problem in his young career, so is looking to recapture the potential he showed a couple of years ago.
Described as “incredible” by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola in 2021, the Wolves ace could have a really bright future ahead of him.
Neto over Gordon
Chelsea are linked with Everton’s 21-year-old attacker Anthony Gordon, who’s a talented English youngster.
However, Neto is the individual that would be the more exciting purchase for the Blues.
The Wolves star looks more likely to push for a starting position at Stamford Bridge right now, especially if he can recapture his top form.
Time will tell if Thomas Tuchel’s side do actually want to sign Neto, though.
