Arsenal fans are smiling here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that the Gunners could well be clear to sign Pedro this January.
The Barcelona star has asked to leave the Camp Nou after falling down the attacking pecking order at the club under Luis Enrique.
Now that Luis Suarez has returned following his ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at the World Cup, Pedro is determined to force through a move in order to make sure he is playing week in, week out.
As one of our punters notes, at Arsenal he could do exactly that, yet Arsene Wenger is not exactly someone punters have the utmost faith in when it comes to transfer dealings.
The £25 million price tag on Pedro’s head could well have Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers and a couple of other Premier League managers having a sniff around the star come the start of the winter transfer window.
As one of our regulars by the pool table notes, given the fantastic impact made by Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal, we think another Barcelona star could be just what the Gunners need.
That said, Theo Walcott is poised to make his return to the Gunners line-up after featuring as an unused substitute at Sunderland this weekend.
Arsenal fans. Do you think that Wenger could pull this move off? Would Pedro have a huge impact at the club? Let us know your thoughts below.
