The Catalan giants can’t seem to find a place for Pedro in their starting lineup at the moment, with big names such as Luis Suarez and Neymar now preferred upfront alongside star player Lionel Messi.

The Spanish international wide-man has previously proven an important figure for Barcelona in their success under former manager Pep Guardiola, but now looks to be on his way out of the club at the end of this season.

Arsenal have emerged as suitors for the 27-year-old, but it now seems that he could head to the San Siro as part of Barca’s aim to land the highly-rated Croatian playmaker.

Kovacic has shown himself to be one of the finest young players in Europe since becoming part of the Inter first-team and could fit in well at the Nou Camp.
