Juventus ask Wolves for Pedro Neto

Juventus are reported to be in talks with Wolverhampton Wanderers over former Lazio winger Pedro Neto.

According to Tuttosport, the deal would be brokered by super agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents Cristiano Ronaldo and has funnelled numerous Portuguese talents through the Wolves squad.

The 20-year-old scored on his senior Portugal debut in a 7-0 friendly victory over Andorra on Wednesday.

Lazio had signed him from Sporting Braga for €18.5m in 2017, but almost immediately sold him to Wolves for €17.9m in the summer of 2019.

So far this season, Neto had scored one goal and contributed two assists in nine competitive games for Wolverhampton.

He only ever made five appearances for Lazio, largely playing for the Primavera youth team instead.
