Pedro has been linked with a move to Arsenal on a number of occasions, with the Spaniard reportedly unhappy at his lack of game time at the Nou Camp.

Arsenal’s French manager is allegedly still interested in bringing the Barcelona star to North London, but Enrique appears to have plans for him.

With Luis Suarez, Neymar, and Lionel Messi up front, Pedro is unlikely to see his first team starts increase, and may look to force his way out of the club in January.

Barcelona are currently facing the possibility of an extended transfer ban, so are unlikely to want to leave themselves with too few options going forward. Therefore despite Pedro starting just two La Liga games this season, he is unlikely to be allowed to leave for anything short of a fortune.
