Pedro Lomba Neto (born 9 March 2000) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays as a winger for Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers and the Portugal national team.

He started his career at Braga, who loaned him to Italian club Lazio in the summer of 2017. In 2019, he signed with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

A former Portuguese international at youth level, Neto made his full debut in November 2020, scoring in his first match.

On 2 August 2019, Neto signed with Wolverhampton Wanderers. He made his debut twelve days later in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round against FC Pyunik, scoring and providing an assist for Morgan Gibbs-White in a 4–0 home win (8–0 aggregate). His maiden appearance in the Premier League took place a few days later in the same month, when he came on for compatriot Diogo Jota late on in the 1–1 home draw to Manchester United.

Neto’s first league start occurred on 28 September 2019, when he assisted Matt Doherty’s opening goal in a 2–0 victory over Watford at Molineux. After having what would have been his first goal in the competition ruled out controversially by VAR at Liverpool on 29 December,he scored in the next game (a 2–1 away loss to Watford on 1 January 2020), becoming the first teenager to achieve the feat for the club in the Premier League in the process.

On 4 October 2020, Neto scored his first league goal for Wolves in the 2020–21 season in the 1–0 home defeat of Fulham. A month later, he extended his contract to 2025.

Neto was Sky Sports’ Player of the match in a league game away to Arsenal on 29 November 2020, in which he scored once and set up Daniel Podence for his team’s second goal in the game as they ran out 2–1 winners in their first victory in North London since 1979.
