Pedro Netothe Portuguese 18-year-old attacker owned by SC Braga who is on loan at Lazio, is being observed by several clubs. Brought to Rome in the Summer of 2017, the winger who is capable of playing on the left or the right has only just recently found his first minutes with the side: it came in the Coppa Italia victory over Novara in which he played the last 13 minutes of the match. With many hopeful that he is to be the next and upcoming thing for the club, they want to see him earning more minutes but that seems to be hard to come by. Because of this, a loan move may be best for the player to grow, however, a deal is very difficult to complete.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio,  AS Viterbese Castrense have inquired about the possibility to have the youngster play for their side. Currently playing in the Serie C, Girone C, they have guaranteed playing time for Pedro Neto but Lazio seem to be keen to deny any requests for the player, even if a loan move. Viterbese sit in 16th spot with 15 points in the league, however, the club has only played 12 matches.
