BREAKING NEWS: Live from Fabrizio Romano,🚨 DONE DEAL, Arsenal finally end two-year long transfer saga as ‘£13m agreement reached’. Arsenal have been linked with a move for premier league superstar for some time now and it all looks set as Arsenal confirms deal. Arsenal finally confirms first signing.


Arsenal’s interest in Wolverhampton Wanderers’ winger Pedro Neto has intensified following news that Braga’s Rodrigo Gomes is set to join Wolves for £12.7 million. The highly-rated 20-year-old winger is expected to undergo a medical at Wolves later this week before signing a long-term contract, keeping him at the club until 2029. Gomes scored seven goals in 30 league games while on loan at Estoril Praia during the 2023/24 season.

Despite interest from Atletico Madrid, Wolves have reportedly secured Gomes’ signature, according to the BBC. This development has caught the attention of Arsenal’s sporting director Edu Gaspar, who has been monitoring Pedro Neto for some time.

The potential arrival of Gomes at Wolves may pave the way for Neto’s departure, a scenario that Edu is likely to welcome. With Wolves potentially bringing in a new winger, Neto’s future at the club becomes uncertain, possibly prompting Arsenal to move for the talented player, as reported by Football London.

Neto’s season was marred by injuries, sidelining him for 19 games due to two separate hamstring injuries, yet he still managed to provide 11 assists in 24 games. However, his injury history might make Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta cautious about signing him. Neto suffered a significant ankle injury in the 2022/23 season, keeping him out for 127 days, and a knee injury in 2021 sidelined him for nearly a year. Considering Wolves’ investment of around £18 million to bring him from Lazio in 2019 and his contract running until 2027, they are unlikely to let him go cheaply.

Arsenal’s Arteta and Edu are preparing for a busy summer transfer window, with numerous top-tier players linked to the club. One such player is Slovenian striker Benjamin Sesko, who scored 18 goals in 42 games for RB Leipzig last season. However, Arsenal will face competition from Chelsea, who are also interested in the 21-year-old.

Another target for Arsenal is Aston Villa’s midfielder Douglas Luiz, but luring him away from Unai Emery’s team could be challenging as he is currently thriving at Villa Park. If they cannot secure Luiz, Arsenal may turn their attention to Bruno Guimaraes or Amadou Onana to strengthen their midfield. The Gunners are determined to improve on last season’s performance after falling short of the Premier League title to Manchester City.
