Arsenal have made contact with the representatives of Barcelona forward Pedro ahead of a potential summer deal to sign the Spain international.

This is according to the Telegraph, who cite reports in Spain as claiming the Gunners are keen to lure the World Cup winner to north London.

Pedro signed a contract extension with Barcelona at the start of June, keeping him tied to the Camp Nou until 2019, but is already having second thoughts due to the intense competition for first-team places in Luis Enrique’s squad.

The 27-year-old, who has won every major trophy up for grabs since forcing his way into Barcelona’s first team during Pep Guardiola’s tenure, is acutely aware that his opportunities will be severely limited next season following an extraordinary treble-winning campaign spearheaded by Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.

Pedro made 35 La Liga appearances for the reigning European champions last season, but only 15 of those were starts. He only managed to score six goals as a result.

Arsenal move would benefit Pedro

The Spaniard has always been a little fish in a big pond at the Camp Nou, but that would change by joining Arsenal, where he stands a far better chance of establishing himself as a starter.

It’s understood that Liverpool would also be keen on signing the Barça ace, who has scored 98 goals in 318 appearances for the Catalan giants, but Arsenal are the ones who appear to have made the first move.
