There have been reports suggesting that the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool could make a move for Neto this summer, though a transfer seems unlikely due to his injury and the fact that Wolves already face the possibility of losing Ruben Neves and Adama Traore.
He played 35 times in all competitions last season before picking up that serious knee injury, scoring five times and registering six assists.
Is Neto worth £50m?
When asked by TIF how much Wolves and the Fosun Group are likely to demand for Neto in the future, Hatfield said:
“Say he finished the season fit and healthy for Wolves, I think they’d be looking upwards of £50m for him.
“He creates chances, he’s obviously a great age as well, breaking into the Portugal national team. There’s so many plus sides to Pedro Neto and so few downsides that they would want upwards of £50m for him.”
In the previous campaign, Neto averaged two key passes per league game – the most in Wolves’ squad (via WhoScored) – so he quite clearly is a creative individual.
He also completed 2.1 dribbles on average, only second to Adama Traore (4.1), an impressive feat.
