Arsenal are set to attempt to convince Barcelona winger Pedro into making a move to the Emirates in January, as reported by Spanish outlet fichajes.net.
The Barca forward finds his route back into the first team increasingly impeded, after Luis Suarez made his competitive debut for the Catalan giants in this weekend’s game against Real Madrid.
Pedro could only look on as his side lost El Classico 3-1, and it now seems as though Arsenal are keen on tempting him into making a switch to the Premier League.
The fact that Luis Enrique chose to throw Suarez straight into the side from the start implies that Pedro will find it difficult to displace the former Liverpool man.
The assumed departure of German international Lukas Podolski would also open up a vacancy in Arsenal’s squad for a forward, which would give Pedro the opportunity to establish a permanent first team berth.
Pedro could link up with former Barca teammate Alexis Sanchez in the process.
