Liverpool are touted with a move for Barcelona’s Pedro if contract rebel England international Raheem Sterling leaves this summer, as the Spanish player considers his future at the Nou Camp, according to The Daily Mail.

The paper claim that the 2010 World Cup winner would command a wage of £90,000 per week, £10,000 less than they offered Sterling in his contract extension despite his demands of £140,000 per week.

Another reason the 27-year-old Spaniard would appeal to the Reds would be his price tag, vastly less than the £50 million which their England international winger would be available for.

The reported price tag of Sterling is said to have Manchester City, Real Madrid and Arsenal interested, meaning that Pedro could become a real transfer target for Brendan Rodgers.

The forward is, according to the paper, tired of being the fourth choice in Barcelona’s all star three pronged attack, which could see him leave Catalonia in search of regular first-team football.

Liverpool may face competition for his signature though, with former manager Pep Guardiola wanting to bring him to runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.
