20-year-old England international Sterling has been the subject of two failed Man City bids [via ESPN] and has reportedly refused to travel with Liverpool on their pre-season tour [Daily Mail], heightening speculation that the youngster could leave Anfield.

The Daily Star claim that Liverpool could make a £30m bid for experienced Nou Camp star Pedro, who has seen his first-team chances limited by the arrivals of Neymar and Luis Suarez in recent seasons.

Pedro has completed eight seasons in the Barcelona first team set-up, but has seen his chances slowly decrease in recent seasons, the 27-year-old making just 15 La Liga starts in 2014/15. The Daily Star believe the chance of regular first team action could persuade the Tenerife-born star to move to Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers has already signed six players this summer but the capture of such an accomplished talent like Pedro would represent a real coup of the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool have already brought in James Milner, Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Roberto Firmino and Nathaniel Clyne this summer.

Pedro has made 318 appearances for Barcelona, netting 98 goals, and has won a host of honours including five La Liga titles and three Champions League triumphs.

The forward also won the World Cup in 2010 and the European Championships-both with Spain-two years later.
