Arsenal fans are buzzing in the Football Transfer Tavern after reading in The Express that they are edging closer to Barcelona’s Pedro after the Spanish international forward submitted a transfer request.
There have been reoccurring rumours in the tavern linking Arsene Wenger with the Spanish star but there has been a big twist in the saga which could see Alexis Sanchez pair up with his former team-mate.
Reports have suggested that the 27-year-old – who is valued at £25 million – has handed in a transfer request which has made the possibility of a switch to Emirates Stadium seem more likely.
Arsenal fans are enthusiastic at the prospect of seeing the flamboyant winger in a red and white shirt and it is believed that the lack of football he is getting at Barca is driving him out of the club.
He was very vague regarding his future at the Camp Nou prior to the World Cup, failing to be drawn on his commitment to the Spanish giants.
Pedro said: “I don’t know what’s going to happen yet, I don’t know anything.
“I’m calm though, I’m at the World Cup and that’s all that matters right now.
“When a decision has to be made, I’ll speak with the club and we’ll see what happens.
“Right now I’m only concentrating on the Spain squad and having a good World Cup. Whatever comes in the future, will come.”
