Pedro interested in move to Arsenal?

Barcelona forward Pedro is reportedly interested by an offer from an unnamed English club - possibly Arsenal, who have a long-standing interest in the Spain international - and could leave the Camp Nou this summer.

Spanish radio station, RAC 1, claim Pedro will hold talks with the man expected to replace Gerardo Martino as Barcelona's head coach in the next few weeks - current Celta Vigo boss Luis Enrique - before making a final decision over his future.

It's believed €25m-rated Pedro has received significant offers to change clubs this summer - and may decide to quit the Camp Nou if Enrique can't guarantee first-team football next season. Despite making 36 La Liga appearances and scoring 15 goals this season, Pedro has often been used as a substitute by Martino, who has preferred the three-pronged attack of Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez and Neymar.

Pedro's contract expires in two summers' time, but Barcelona could still fetch a hefty fee for the Spaniard, who was included in Vicente del Bosque's 30-man World Cup squad earlier this week, if sold before this summer's transfer window closes.

Arsenal have been linked with Pedro on numerous occasions over recent weeks - most recently on Sunday, when it was reported that Arsene Wenger has added both the 26-year-old and teammate Alexis Sanchez to his wish-list.

Wenger is keen to sign another forward to ease the pressure on France international Olivier Giroud, who grew increasingly tired as the season wore on due to playing so many matches in the opening months of the season.
