Liverpool would need to pay £80 million to secure Mohamed Salah’s successor

According to caughtoffside, Pedro Neto has many fans, including Liverpool, but current sources suggest that Liverpool will have to pay £80 million for his services. Following an amazing season at Molineux, Neto figures to be one of the Premier League’s most sought-after players this summer.

The 23-year-old has three goals and eleven assists in all competitions, and he has contributed to a goal in four of his last five appearances. Numerous elite teams have expressed interest in his services as a consequence of his outstanding performance, with Liverpool regularly mentioned.

However, David Ornstein of The Athletic says that the Portuguese winger’s contract ends in 2027 and that a transfer would cost around £80 million. Manchester City, Arsenal, and Newcastle United are all interested in securing the Liverpool transfer target.

Dan Ashworth, Newcastle’s sports director, is a huge Neto supporter, thus Manchester United may be considered if he takes over as transfer chief at Old Trafford.

Last season, Wolves were forced to release numerous first-team players because they were in violation of the Premier League’s profit and sustainability regulations. However, following a good season, this does not look to be the case this year, as manager Gary O’Neil recently announced that only genuine bids will be considered.

“Financially, we’re in a position where we don’t need to lose our best players, or any players,” O’Neil told talkSPORT earlier this week. “So it puts us in a better position than we were last summer, allowing us to make our own judgements based on what is best for the club rather than what may be required.

“No one will go until it suits us. Obviously, if great clubs come knocking for players and the price is right, and we believe it is best for Wolves, we will always consider it.”

Given the growing questions over Mohamed Salah’s future, Liverpool are expected to prioritise a new right-winger this summer. Three stars, including the Egyptian, are ready to reach the last year of their contracts. The Saudi Pro League is expected to make a bid similar to the £150 million offer that was rejected late in the summer.
