Arsenal and Liverpool are both monitoring Barcelona forward Pedro's situation at the Nou Camp with a view to a sensational transfer swoop, according to The Express.

Pedro has been in and out of the Barca side throughout the campaign despite scoring consistently, with the Spanish international thought to be frustrated at not being considered a certain starter.

The 26-year-old is on record as saying he will consider his long-term future if the situation does not improve by the end of the season, alerting a number of clubs across Europe to the possibility of landing a player arguably approaching his peak powers.

The Gunners are thought to be leading the chase for Pedro's signature, although Barca have given no indication that they would be prepared to part with a player who came through the club's famed youth academy.

Liverpool are also actively seeking top players to take the pressure off Luis Suarez in a long-term bid to push up the table, which makes Pedro an ambitious but plausible potential target.

Barca have the versatile winger under contract until 2016 though, with a whopping £125m buy-out clause that protects La Liga's reigning champions from any notion of a cut-price exit.

Pedro has not let any rumours over his future affect a rich vein of scoring form, including scoring a hat-trick in the space of five minutes against Getafe in a 5-2 win last night.
