Ideal Gunners target available on the cheap this January.
Arsenal are reportedly keeping an eye on Pedro’s contract situation at Barcelona as the Catalan giants look to tie down the player who could leave for free in 2016, according to the Daily Mirror.

Supposedly available for just £10m at the moment, Pedro is keen to leave the Nou Camp after falling out of favour in the club’s first-team in recent times, with the under-appreciated wide-man now behind the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and inevitably Luis Suarez in the pecking order.
This is no shame for the player himself, who has done everything possible to keep himself in the starting lineup with some superb goalscoring displays from out wide in recent years, as well as showing a habit for scoring in the big games, such as a number of El Clasico strikes and the opening goal in the 2011 Champions League final victory over Manchester United.
That was Pedro’s second winners’ medal in Europe’s top club competition, and the 27-year-old has also won the World Cup and 2012 European Championships with Spain, having amasssed 44 caps for the national team despite immense competition in the attacking midfield positions.
A direct, pacy player who makes excellent runs into dangerous positions off the ball, Pedro would complement this current Arsenal side perfectly, and is just the player the club need as a replacement for the injury-prone Theo Walcott, who misses far too many games to be relied upon in the long term.
Pedro is a similar style of player to Walcott but also has far more to his game, as well as an experience of winning the major trophies with Barca and Spain. For £10m, there may not be a better player available on the market for Arsenal right now, and they could certainly afford him with the sale of other unwanted stars such as Lukas Podolski.
