Tottenham could compete with Arsenal for £60m-rated attacker this summer

By Saikat -

Tottenham could battle it out with rivals Arsenal for the signature of Wolves winger Pedro Neto.

Ange Postecoglou is keen on reinforcing his attack ahead of next as he eyes a top-four finish in his second season in charge. While they did an impressive job in the final third last season without their record goal scorer Harry Kane who had left for Bayern Munich, the Australian manager feels they need more firepower if they want to compete with the best teams in the country.

Tottenham are looking to bring in a new number nine as well as a winger this summer and Wolves ace Pedro Neto is one of the names on their wishlist. According to a report from TEAMtalk, Spurs are ready to rival Arsenal in their pursuit of the services of the Portuguese international.

Mikel Arteta is also keen on bolstering his attack as he looks to end their wait for the Premier League title. His team have been monitoring Neto and they have been in conversation with the agency that represents the player. While he has been on the Gunners’ radar for some time now, they will face competition from bitter rivals Tottenham for his signature.

While Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze is the top target for Spurs, they will shift their focus towards the Portuguese winger if they fail to sign the England international. Tottenham’s recruitment team are quite impressed with Neto’s pace and his creative ability and they feel he could do wonders under Postecoglou.

Wolves are not keen on selling the 24-year-old who had 14 goal contributions last season. With three years still left on his deal, they will look for a minimum of £60 million. The asking price has had a significant drop since January because of an injury to the player and it could further go down if Neto pushes for a move away. Despite the £60 million asking price, the interested parties might be able to secure Neto for as low as £50 million.
