Arsene Wenger is also helped by the player’s friend Alexis Sanchez being at the Emirates…
Arsenal have been boosted by reports that Barcelona star Pedro is willing to let his contract run down, as he looks for a move away from the Nou Camp, reports the Metro.
The winger’s current deal finishes at the end of next season, and as he isn’t getting much first team action he could be willing to let the deal run down. The Catalan club may be willing to let him go as their transfer ban will be over by the time Pedro can leave.
This season the Spaniard has found himself on the bench more often than prior campaigns.
The addition of Luis Suarez, fielded up front in a attacking trio alongisde Lionel Messi and Neymar, has left Pedro with little opportunity to play full matches and he has only made 11 starts.
One aspect that may lure the former World Cup winner to the Gunners is the fact that Pedro’s good friend, Alexis Sanchez, plays at the Emirates Stadium having moved to the north London side in a £35m transfer last summer.
