The Spanish forward has seen first-team opportunities at the Camp Nou limited this season and admitted earlier this month that he was open to the idea of move in the January transfer window.
The Gunners along with Liverpool are among a number of top European clubs monitoring Pedro’s situation and the 26-year-old admitted, despite being happy at Barca, he would have to consider his future if his playing time did not improve.
“I am happy with Barcelona, but things have to be evaluated every season,” he said.
“My goal is to try and stay at this club where I feel very valued and loved.
“When you play less you do not feel less important, but it is true that you notice playing fewer minutes and it is different.
“But I must fight for my only goal, which is to continue with Barca.”
Pedro’s contract at Barca runs until 2016 and his £125m buy-out clause could prove a major problem in any club’s attempts to prize him away from the La Liga champions.
