Fernando Torres is convinced Barcelona forward Pedro will succeed in the Premier League if the Spaniard completes his expected move to England this month.

The Atletico Madrid striker, who previously played for Liverpool and Chelsea, feels the 28-year-old Spaniard would be ideal for the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City or Chelsea thanks to his quality and work ethic.

United are currently in the driving seat to sign the World Cup winner, but face competition from their Premier League rivals for his signature.

Torres was quoted by the Daily Mirror as saying: “He is a good friend, and if he decides that England is the next step in his career, I am sure he will do very well there.

“He has all the ability you would expect from a player who has been at Barcelona for so many years, but also he has a great work ethic.”

The Atletico striker added: "He works hard, he will help defend, he won’t be bullied, he has everything to succeed in The Premier League.

“I think he will find it very hard to leave Barcelona, but I understand as much as anybody how important it is to be playing regularly — especially once you reach a certain age. You need to be at a club where you are playing a lot of football.”

Premier League move makes sense for Pedro

Barcelona’s technical secretary Robert Fernandez stated earlier this week Pedro has asked to leave the Camp Nou, although the versatile forward denied this after scoring the winning goal in the Super Cup against Sevilla on Tuesday night.

But Pedro admitted he wants regular first-team football after falling down the pecking order under Luis Enrique.

A move to any of the three aforementioned English clubs would make sense for Pedro, provided he’s guaranteed a place in the first team.

As Torres says, the underrated forward undoubtedly possesses the quality and the required work ethic to flourish in the Premier League.
