Liverpool fans are informed by Metro in the Football Transfer Tavern that Brendan Rodgers hopes to hijack Arsenal’s bid for Barcelona’s flying winger, Pedro.
In recent days Arsene Wenger has been a clear favourite to snap up the 27-year-old in January after the Spaniard is set to leave, after having not seen eye to eye with his new boss, Luis Enrique.
After a lacklustre performance against Newcastle, Rodgers will be desperate to bring back their high tempo, attacking football, which was feared last season.
It is believed they will have to cough up a fee of £25m in order to bring him to Anfield, but reports suggest that the Reds are willing to outbid the Gunners in order to get their man.
Although punters in the Tavern think that if he had the choice he would opt for a move to the Emirates.
Not only does Wenger play an attractive and entertaining brand of football, his style of play is also similar to Barcelona’s, meaning he will fit in more comfortably.
But also it would allow him to link up with his old teammate, Alexis Sanchez, as they were both part of one of the most feared striking forces in world football.
