Liverpool have started the season well and could be genuine title challengers once again as Jurgen Klopp has revitalised his side for another generation following the strike force of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohammed Salah. However, he is ready to make another signing to help push Liverpool in the right direction and this winger is ready to step into the Liverpool side straight away from Wolves.

Wolves star Pedro Neto is Liverpool-bound

Pedro Neto of Wolverhampton Wanderers has been playing out of his skin under Gary O’Neil and the 23-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down as he attempts to help his side move clear of the relegation zone.

With Wolves facing a tough start following the loss of manager Julen Lopetegui, Neto has taken it upon himself to drag Wolves through their tough start by providing five assists and one goal.

It is no wonder that he has been heavily linked with Liverpool and other clubs in the Premier League because it is clear he is a level above where Wolves currently are.

What would Neto bring to the Liverpool side?

Neto is a direct winger who uses his pace to attack the full-back and dribble passed them with effortless ease. As has been evident this year, his assists tally is high and that is because his crossing ability is up there with some of the best wide players in the league.

Liverpool may have players like Luis Diaz, Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, and Salah all able to play in the front line for the Merseyside club. However, adding Neto to that front line could well be devastating for opposition sides; not that Liverpool aren’t already, especially after the 7-0 thumping of Manchester United last season.

Neto could be a replacement for Salah who is still linked with a Saudi move but he would certainly be a long-term replacement nevertheless.
