Wolves have started productively in the transfer window this summer but they still face the probability of losing key players.
Ruben Neves and Adama Traore are both pushing for moves away from the Midlands, while Rui Patricio has already sealed an exit.
What’s the word?
One player who the club haven’t actively looked to sell this summer is Portuguese sensation Pedro Neto.
They are weighing up whether they want to grant the youngster an exit, with a number of Europe’s top clubs pursuing his signature.
Should Wolves sell Pedro Neto?
According to the report from 90min, Spurs, Juventus and Liverpool have all made enquiries in the hope of signing him.
Wolves are in a position this summer where they may need to sell a few of their prized assets in order to build funds to acquire new players.
However, while somebody like Neves is more expendable, letting Neto walk out of the Midlands this summer would be a huge error of judgement from Bruno Lage; his biggest yet since becoming the club’s new manager.
Neto was absolutely magnificent throughout 2020/21 and, in the process of scoring five goals and registering six assists, he was named the club’s Player of the Season.
A dazzling winger adept with the ball on both feet, his frantic style of play has caught the eye of many. He was described as “sensational” by Jamie Redknapp last season, completing 2.1 dribbles and two key passes per match, the highest of any Wolves player.
Neto was also their joint-top scorer and provided their most assists. With that in mind, selling him would be nothing short of catastrophic.
They have signed Trincao to bolster their ranks in the final third and he will likely improve their chances of scoring more goals.
However, after a campaign in which they were missing Raul Jimenez since November with a fractured skull, Wolves need to keep those in the squad who are capable of finding the net regularly.
Neto is such a huge presence in the squad and currently their best player, so allowing him to leave would be foolish. It would also deeply upset the loving Molineux faithful – as a supporter, you never want to see your star players departing.
