£50-60m needed...will Liverpool move for Wolves winger Pedro Neto this summer? Transfers

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah is likely to receive a huge offer from Saudi Arabia this summer. With rumors of Al Hilal, Al-Ittihad, and others preparing big money, this could be the last chance to sell the player, who will be in the final year of his contract next season, at a higher price.

In any case, securing a replacement for the Egyptian winger, who will be 32 years old this June, is a pressing issue. Although there are promising young attackers such as Ben Doak and Kaide Gordon, they are still inexperienced and will need players who have achieved results in the Premier League and European soccer.

Portuguese international Pedro Neto, who has been a key player in the attack for Wolverhampton Wanderers and has a sharp counter attack, is being discussed as one of the candidates.

According to Football Insider, he is likely to demand a transfer fee of 50-60 million pounds from any club that moves for him this summer.

The 23-year-old winger, who is also of interest to Arsenal, has a long-term contract until 2027. For Liverpool, who have a penchant for short and long counters, the player is ideal, as he breaks down the right wing with his menacing speed and dribble penetration.

The problem is that he does not have the scoring ability of Mohamed Salah. He has only scored three goals in 18 games so far this season, but he has 10 assists and continues to lead the Wolves’ attack.

He has been with the club since the summer of 2019, so it’s about time for him to challenge himself at a big club. Will the Portuguese winger make the step up this summer?
