has been speaking on the most recent episode of the E&S Wolves podcast where he offered his thoughts on Pedro Neto’ future. 

The 20-year-old winger is having a fantastic season for the Midlands side, bagging five goals and laying on four assists in his 28 Premier League appearances.

His scintillating displays have seen the Portugal international linked with several top teams across the continent in the past, despite the youngster only signing a new long-term contract with the Molineux outfit in November.

After Nuno Espirito Santo’s men sold key players in Diogo Jota and Matt Doherty last summer, Judah believes waving goodbye to another one of Wolves’ assets would send out the wrong signals regarding their ambitions for the future.

He said: “For me, if they sold Neto, in the summer, I think we kind of see where Fosun are going if they do. Because they can’t about, especially after Jota, especially after Doherty, you can’t talk about trying to get into that top four, breaking through and then, you know, being perennial Europa League candidates with the odd run if you’re selling your very best player at 20 years old.

“So, if they do do that, then I think that many people will be absolutely furious, I don’t care what money you get for him. You’ve got to build the team on someone like Pedro Neto.”

TIF Thoughts on Neto…

The former forward has lit up the top flight since arriving from Italy and is fast becoming one of the Premier League’s most exciting young talents.

Wolves have made great strides over the last few years under Espirito Santo’s stewardship, but the club are in danger of regressing if they keep selling their best players.

Neto may well outgrow Wolves one day, given his world-class potential, but selling him so soon could cause long-lasting to Espirito Santo’s side’s reputation.
