Conor Coady has hinted his teammate Pedro Neto may leave Wolves in response to Jamie Carragher’s tongue-in-cheek remark about a possible change from Liverpool.
Speaking on the former Reds man’s The Greatest Game podcast, the center-half spoke lyrically about the Portuguese striker whose recent performances have reportedly caught the wandering eyes of other Premier League clubs.
“Did you tell him about the quality of Liverpool?” the 43-year-old asked.
“He does not leave the wolves!” Coady responded, before developing the 21-year-old’s influence at Stade Molineux.
“Boss, mate, yeah. Very good. He’s classy.
“You forget he’s 21, I look at him like a 28-year-old man. He doesn’t look that age.
“We were talking the other day and we were talking about how he was born in 2000 and we put him in the same category as Phil Foden.
“You look at how well he’s doing and then you look at the numbers Pedro brings up as well, as well as the assists and goals and how he affects Wolves games.
“He’s an incredible player, absolutely incredible.”

He’s not a player we’ve been linked with regularly in recent months, with players like Patson Daka and Dusan Vlahovic appearing to appear with much more regularity.
That doesn’t mean we’d be totally opposed to a move this summer, if our recruiting team got a liking to the young winger.
While Neto’s numbers aren’t exactly comparable to our own forward line, with just 10 goal contributions in 35 games (in all competitions), the acquisition of Diogo Jota last summer proved that earlier numbers can be misleading.
If the player could be insured for his estimated worth of € 35m (according to Transfermarkt), that could be seen as a very good deal as Jurgen Klopp looks to expand his options.
