Manchester City 'hold an interest' in the impressive 21 year-old Portugal and Wolves winger, Pedro Neto according to the latest information emerging in England.

The full international attacker is currently enduring an impressive individual season under Nuno Santos at Molineux, registering 33 appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals as well as providing a further four assists.

In previous months, Manchester City have reportedly held an interest in fellow Wolves attacker Adama Traore as a potential replacement for Leroy Sane - who left for Bayern Munich last summer. Ultimately, it was Wolves' staggering price tag for the Spaniard that pushed Etihad officials in the direction of Valencia's Ferran Torres instead.

However, according to Duncan Castles on the latest episode of the Transfer Window podcast, it was the monitoring, scouting, and observing of Traore that lead Manchester City officials towards 'holding an interest' in Pedro Neto.

Castles explains, "One of the clubs that are interested and have been interested in Pedro Neto in England are Manchester City."

"I'm told that when they were watching and paying attention to Adama Traore last season and spending time at Wolves games, as Neto was becoming more of a fixture in the team, they started to see the quality of his play and considered that he might be a better fit for their team than Traore - and they continue to hold an interest", Castles continued.

Unsurprisingly, Manchester City are not alone in showing some level of interest in Neto, with Duncan Castles going on to reveal that city rivals Manchester United are observing and looking at the player, along with Serie A giants Juventus.

In terms of a price for the Portugal international, this is something that is yet to have been decided by Wolves chiefs. Given the quality of the player, it has been reaffirmed that he "will not be cheap".

Castles does state however that Wolves would be open to selling "if money is right", but will wait until end of the current Premier League season before putting a price on the player.

Considering the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming market, Wolves are wanting to wait to see how the window evolves, how much money is available for players across the continent, and particularly, how much money they could possibly get for Pedro Neto.

Manchester City already reportedly hold an interest in Aston Villa's Jack Grealish - so one may wish to believe that Etihad officials are ready to recruit in the wide attacking position, should one of the existing members of their squad secure a high-profile move away from the North-West this summer.

The real focus however is on striker, with City quite clearly focused on securing Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland. However, as is the case with the majority of players at present, there have been no concrete movements for the Norwegian forward.
