Pedro is a popular player here in the Football Transfer Tavern and according to Metro, we could well be about to see him up close and personal with a switch to Arsenal drawing closer by the day.
The Gunners are now rumoured to be ready to open negotiations with Barcelona regarding Pedro’s proposed transfer to North London.
The Spanish forward has handed in a transfer request at the Camp Nou and has made it very clear that he wants to leave in order to ensure he receives first team football on a weekly basis.
Our resident neutrals think that Arsenal could well be the ideal destination for him with the Gunners’ attacking style of play and the public backing from Gunners manager Arsene Wenger representing key requirements for Pedro to shine.
Arsenal have already lured Alexis Sanchez from the Catalan giants and it certainly seems that Arsene Wenger is making sure that he carries on with his attacking recruitment policy.
However, our regulars move away from the dartboard and make it very clear that they think a defensive midfielder and a centre back are more of a necessity rather than another tricky winger!
We also note that no matter how close a deal for Pedro seems, until it is signed and sealed, we are highly doubtful that Arsene Wenger could pull it off without a transfer scramble taking place first.
Arsenal fans. Is Pedro someone you simply have to sign given his uncertain situation or do you have other more important issues to solve first? Let us know your thoughts below.
