Arsenal look set to miss out on Pedro Neto in January after the attacker’s decision to stay put with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Portuguese winger has been in scintillating form for the Midlands outfit this term and he recently registered his seventh assist of the season.
His form has captured the attention of the Gunners, who are long-term admirers, but they may have to wait until the summer to sign him.
Neto is aware of the increasing interest in his services, but he has reportedly committed to stay with Wolves for the remainder of the campaign.
The news is bound to disappoint the Gunners, who were aiming to bring him in January in order to strengthen their pursuit of the league title.
Neto has been long on the radar of Arteta and sporting director Edu, but a deal is unlikely to materialise until the summer at least.
