“He told me he’s going to break his club’s heart by joining Arsenal next summer”- Arsenal star Fabio Vierra tells his teammate Gabriel Martinelli that his countryman is ready to break his club’s heart as he’s desperately keen on coming to Arsenal
In a revelation that has sent shockwaves through football circles, Arsenal star Fabio Vierra recently disclosed a compelling conversation with his teammate Gabriel Martinelli. Vierra shared that a fellow countryman, identified as Wolves winger Pedro Neto, confided in him about his strong desire to “break his club’s heart” by making a move to Arsenal next summer.
This revelation comes amid previous statements from Neto suggesting that his “future ambitions don’t matter.” Despite these assertions, recent reports indicate a shift in Neto’s stance, as he is reportedly enthusiastic about the prospect of joining the Gunners.
Pedro Neto is currently enjoying a stellar season in the Premier League, sitting joint-top of the assists charts with an impressive seven assists. His remarkable performance has drawn attention from several top clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester United.
While all four clubs have been linked to Neto in recent months, TEAMtalk’s latest report suggests that Arsenal is currently leading the race for the winger. However, acquiring Neto’s services won’t come cheap, as it’s estimated that Arsenal would need to part ways with at least £60 million to secure the talented player.
Despite Neto expressing contentment at Wolves in the past, recent developments indicate a potential willingness to explore new opportunities. The Mirror report emphasizes that Neto remains a “firm target” for Arsenal, and intriguingly, he is said to be “keen” on making a move to the Emirates.
Amidst rumors of “statement transfer dealings” expected from Arsenal next summer, Neto could play a pivotal role in reshaping the club’s squad. However, with Manchester United and other clubs expressing interest, the Gunners might need to act swiftly to secure Neto’s signature.
In a similar vein, Ivan Toney from Brentford has also emerged as a player expressing interest in joining Arsenal. Toney’s recent social media activity, seemingly celebrating Declan Rice’s winner against Luton, has added fuel to the speculation. While the decision ultimately rests with Brentford on whether to part ways with Toney, Arsenal finds themselves in an enviable position with players of Neto and Toney’s caliber expressing a desire to don the Gunners’ jersey, presenting intriguing possibilities for the club’s future.
