Spanish international forward, Pedro, was left frustrated last season due to his lack of time on the pitch, but it seems his employers still wish to retain his services.
Arsenal mastermind, Arsene Wenger, is a keen admirer of the Barcelona striker, and will be waiting intently for news coming out of the Catalan club.
With Lukas Podolski creating waves of discontent regarding his future at the Emirates, Wenger will be looking to bolster the Gunner’s attacking prowess if the German 6-footer decides to up and leave in January. Pedro, could well fit the replacement bill.
With Luis Saurez eligible to play for the Spanish giants at the end of October, following his lengthy ban for acting like an alligator, Pedro may see himself once again down the pecking order. Despite this, Barcelona are urging his agents to begin negotiations to extend his stay at the club.
Pedro, originally from Tenerife, has never plyed his trade away from Barcelona having worked his way up through the ranks since 2005, and the 27-year-old, valued at £10million, may seem a snip at that price to the North London giants.
Incidently, if the move did go ahead, surely there would be no language barrier? Isn’t Tenerife predominantly English these days?
