The Portuguese winger has torn up the championship this season. He has registered four assists and has done so against top opposition, causing all sorts of problems for Liverpool, Man City and Man United.
Of course, these good performances have made some big clubs take notice of Neto, including Arsenal and Liverpool.
However, according to Graeme Bailey, speaking on the Talking Transfers podcast, Aston Villa could actually be the team to watch in this transfer race. Villas to see
Bailey shares what he knows about the man worth £50 million.
“Arsenal have been interested in Neto for a long time, they were monitoring him before his ankle injury, they have been monitoring him since he arrived at Molineux. He’s a great player, I like him a lot, I was shocked to see Nunes go to City because I thought someone would replace Neto before Nunes. Aston Villa are the most interesting here, they are working on improving the striker position, is Leon Bailey the answer? Monchi will have a say on that and Neto is a player they are watching. Liverpool have had a lot of interest in the Premier League in the past and I would be very surprised if they were no longer interested,” Bailey said.
If Villa sign Neto, they will face one of the scariest attacks in Europe.
Moussa Diaby and Ollie Watkins have both been absolutely fantastic and if you add Neto to the mix you have something truly special.
Of course, with Arsenal and Liverpool around, this deal won’t be easy to achieve, but at the same time, Villa are on the rise, and these types of transfers are certainly not out of reach for Unai Emery these days. this day.
