Expert issues verdict on Neto passing Arsenal medical after Wolves ‘green light’
Pedro Neto’s recent knee injury history will not stand in the way of him passing a potential Arsenal medical.
That is the view of medical expert Ben Dinnery, who runs the Premier Injuries site and has a background in injury and data analysis.
The Athletic reported on Monday (22 August) that the Gunners are in talks with Wolves over a possible deal for Neto.
The 22-year-old Portuguese winger, who in March signed a new contract until 2027, returned from a knee injury in February that saw him sidelined for close to a year.
Wolves recently broke their transfer record to bring Neto’s countryman Matheus Nunes, 23, to Molineux.
They have also been linked with a number of other attacking options, with the end of the summer transfer window now in sight.
Dinnery suggests that Wolves’ activity in the market may effectively be a “green light” for Neto to move to complete a switch to the Emirates.
“This is something we at Premier Injuries covered in pre-season,” he told Football Insider’s Adam Williams.
“There was a lot of interest ahead of his return to that Wolves team.
“If I recall correctly, he was in that Wolves team from around February time. Everyone expected him to come back into the team and really bang for the second half of the season, but that didn’t really happen.

“The knee issue itself was unfortunate but there will be no lasting effects with regards to that. With a good pre-season under his belt, I think he should have a good campaign.
