Chelsea could make a move for Barcelona forward Pedro this summer, according to the Telegraph.
The report claims that the Stamford Bridge outfit have been monitoring the Spanish international for some time now, with it being suggested that he could be handed a role in the club's front three for the 201516 season.
Pedro, who is 27-years-old, has endured a tricky time on Spanish soil throughout the course of the campaign, with the superstar trio of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez ahead of him in the pecking order at the club.

It appears, then, that a move to Stamford Bridge could now be possible for the player, but it remains to be seen as to whether the club's hierarchy step up their pursuit of him anytime soon.
£20 million deal
The Telegraph go on to report that he could be available for around £20 million in the next window, as Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho goes in search of constant improvement in west London.

The Blues, of course, secured the Premier League title this past weekend, having been way in front of their rivals, however it appears that Mourinho is intent on making changes before the start of next season.
There's no doubt about it, the Blues chief would have been disappointed with his side's early exit from the Champions League at the hands of PSG as the Blues were eliminated at the Round of 16 stage of the competition, so perhaps he sees Pedro as another fine option in attack.
There's no doubt about it, with the likes of Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa already plying their trade at the Bridge, the club already have an array of attacking talent at their disposal, but some may well argue that Pedro is an upgrade on the likes of Oscar, Juan Cuadrado and Willian.
Prime of his career
And one thing's for sure, Pedro would arrive at the club in the prime of his career. At 27, after recent struggles in Spain, the versatile forward would certainly have a point to prove in England, and would no doubt prove a fine coup for the club.
£20m certainly appears to be a good price for the player's services, too, so it wouldn't be a major surprise if the Blues' hierarchy attempted to complete the transfer sooner rather than later.
Mourinho's dealings have been outstanding in the last couple of years and he may well be at it again in the upcoming window.
