Liverpool are waiting in the wings to swoop for Pedro with the Barcelona winger set for talks with the Nou Camp club to discuss his future.
According to El Mundo Deportivo the Spanish international, along with midfielder Xavi Hernandez, is set for talks with Barca officials over his future with both expected to push for moves.
Xavi has offers on the table from Qatar and the MLS, with Manchester United also thought to be interested while Liverpool and Arsenal are the main suitors for Pedro.
Liverpool or Arsenal
But El Mundo Deportivo reports that Liverpool are the main team keen on the Spanish international and currently are the frontrunners to sign him. Reports earlier this week suggested Barca may use Pedro as bait in talks over Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, and this remains a possibility.
Both Real Madrid and Barcelona were keen to sign the Uruguayan international, but it remains to be seen how much his latest biting incident has affected their interest. In all likelihood, both Spanish clubs - like most teams - are likely to overlook these moments of madness if it means signing a 30-goal-a-season striker.
Liverpool could get the choice of Pedro or Alexis Sanchez should they signal a willingness to listen to offers for Suarez. Barca are keen to include one of the two as part of the deal to lower the cash demand, with Suarez reportedly valued somewhere around the £68m mark.
Pedro at Barca
The El Mundo report claims Pedro has requested talks with new Barca boss Luis Enrique and Andoni Zubizarreta, the club's sporting director. Barca's Spanish contingent excluding Gerard Pique - that's Pedro, Jordi Alba, Xavi, Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta - returned from Brazil yesterday following the country's elimination at the group stage.
He is under contract until the summer of 2016, but Barca are thought to be willing to move on a number of first-team players for the right price.
Cesc Fabregas has already moved to Chelsea, while Carles Puyol has retired and Victor Valdes is out of contract. Sanchez is attracting attention in the wake of his, and Chile's, impressive World Cup performances while Alex Song could also be allowed to leave.
