According to reports, Arsenal is looking into the possibility of signing Pedro Neto from Wolves as they search for a new winger to take Nicolas Pepe's place.
Raphinha from Leeds United was briefly considered by the Gunners, who were already looking for a new wide player, despite his insistence that he only wanted to play for Barcelona.
Nevertheless, Mikel Arteta will be more eager to bolster his attacking lineup once Pepe departs the team because Nice of Ligue 1 is already in advanced loan negotiations.
The £72 million acquisition was not included in Arsenal's squad for their victory over Bournemouth over the weekend due to rumors regarding his future, though it is believed that wage negotiations were the sticking point in the negotiations.
The Athletic is now reporting that Pedro Neto is their top target after Arteta previously suggested he would like to sign more new players before the transfer window closes.
Although it won't be simple, negotiations have been ongoing for more than a month, and Jorge Mendes is an important player.
The Portuguese super-agent has close ties to Wolves and has been involved in a host of transfers since they returned to the Premier League, helping to broker recent deals for Matheus Nunes and Goncalo Guedes as well as a number of outgoings.
