According to Portuguese publication A Bola, Arsenal have had a €15 million bid for Pedro Neto rejected by Braga.
The 17-year-old winger, who is the second youngest player to ever score in the Portuguese top flight, apparently has a buyout clause of €20 million and is also being courted by Barcelona.
After penning a contract renewal in March, Neto is tied to Braga until 2020.
We haven’t watched him play but, given his age and experience, we’re assuming that this lad is more a future prospect rather than a finished product.
We can’t shake the feeling that Arsenal are probably being used as a pawn in this situation, so we’re going with a high poo-o-meter rating.
