Wolves eye £80m in revenue for Pedro Neto...Liverpool, Arsenal, Man City and Newcastle are all in contention Transfers

Egyptian international Mohamed Salah continues to receive heat from the Saudi Professional League. Reports are circulating that Liverpool is looking to renew his contract, but with Jurgen Klopp stepping down and a major shakeup in the organizational structure, the Egyptian King’s departure is uncertain.

The search for a replacement for the player, who will turn 32 this year, is underway amid what is said to be Liverpool’s last chance for a big payday.

The right winger, who has been active on the European stage, has been making the headlines in the press, and Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Pedro Neto is reportedly one of the targets.

According to Metro, the Portuguese winger, who has also attracted interest from Arsenal, Manchester City, and Newcastle United, was reportedly available for a fee of £53 million, but his club is looking to up the ante and sell him for £80 million.

The transfer fee paid by Premier League clubs is also increasing year by year, as if dragged by the ever-inflating global economy. Although the financial situation is getting tighter, many clubs have more ample budgets than in other leagues, and it can be said that the three teams other than Liverpool are willing to offer the same amount.

For Liverpool, which aims for sound management, this would be seen as an exorbitant amount. He has played more than 100 games at Molineux Stadium and has been a threat in attack this season. Especially on the counter, he continues to create chances with his quick feet and dribbling ability, sometimes scoring goals.

However, he does not score as many goals as the Egyptian winger. He is more of an assist player and cannot be considered a direct replacement. He has also been out for long periods of time due to injury, missing 27 games in the 2022/2023 season.

On the other hand, that explosive acceleration and attacking ability to toy with left backs is appealing. He is good enough to be a regular contender at a strong Premier League club, and has the potential to become a legend in Liverpool’s history if he can improve his scoring touch.

If the £80 million price tag is true, it is unlikely that Liverpool will join the fray, but what will the future hold for the 23-year-old winger?
