Arsenal are readying a bid for Barcelona attacker Pedro Rodriguez as sources within the Nou Camp have confirmed that high level scouts from the North London side have been spotted at matches state Tribalfootball, even before the two teams were drawn to meet each other in Champions League action.
23 year old Tenerife born star known more commonly as Pedro has been a big success since he became a first team regular 18 months ago. The youngster can play as part of a two man strike pairing but more often than not plays out wide as part of a front three and the Barca man has 39 goals over the past season and a half and whilst it would clearly be something of a shock for Arsene Wenger to persuade the player to move to the Emirates it appears he is still very much a target.
Some reports estimate his worth at around £22-24m and Pep Guardiola clearly sees speedy pint sized performer as part of the club’s long term plans but this has not dampened interest shown by the North London club.
The Gunners boss will be looking for significant financial backing from his board to help back his offer but given that Arsenal are one of the most successfully run clubs in Europe, with a transfer war-chest available to Wenger, then money shouldn’t be an issue.
