It’s understood that Gary O'Neil is keen on replicating West Ham's successful mode last summer where they used the funds made from the sale of Declan Rice to Arsenal to bolster their squad.

Wolves are determined to extract maximum value for Neto's services, eyeing a significant windfall. We are told that the club will ask for a figure of around €93million, given the amount of interest in the player from some of the Premier League’s elite clubs.

Meanwhile, Man City view Neto as a potential replacement for either Bernardo Silva or as a catalyst to move Phil Foden into a more central midfield role for next season. The reigning Premier League champions are expected to be a major player in the upcoming bidding war that’s set for the summer for Neto and it may come down to which club offer the best terms to the 23-year-old.

Which clubs admire Pedro Neto?

As previously revealed, Arsenal are long-term admirers of Neto and have identified him as their primary transfer target for the summer. The Gunners are prepared to go all out to bring the talented winger to the Emirates Stadium, hoping to bolster their attacking options.

Liverpool, on the other hand, are also interested in Neto. The Reds remain uncertain about the long-term future of Mohamed Salah, especially with Jurgen Klopp announcing that he would leave the club at the end of the season, and there is a need to source a successor to the Egyptian.
