But in both of them, Arsenal seems more interested in Pedro. The Portugal international was in superb form during the first few months of the season, with Premier League goal contributions arriving in eight successive games before injury hit.
Despite that, Neto only recently returned to action at the end of last month coming off the bench for a cameo in the 3-0 win against Everton. With full match fitness likely not present.

It seems possible that The Gunners will look domestically.
Signing Neto would give Arsenal a more well-rounded frontline and more options to compete both domestically and in Europe. A hamstring injury has derailed the Portuguese star’s campaign in recent weeks but Wolves boss Gary O’Neil revealed on Thursday he should return soon.
Should Arsenal wish to prise the player away, they will have to fork out a hefty feel.
Also, Arteta has said that he wants competition in every position. bringing Neto could bring competition to the Squad. So it will be interesting to see what happens in the summer. Who Arsenal is going for?
