Arsenal’s delve in the upcoming transfer window seems to be taking a rather speedy fashion as there are reports that the Gunners are set to land want-away Spanish star Pedro Rodriguez.
Arsenal have been handed a boost in their pursuit of want-away world cup winner Pedro.
Popular Spanish media outlet Fichajes.net, claim that the Gunners are set to land the £10.8million cut-price transfer of Barcelona winger Pedro.
It is no secret that Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for world class targets this summer as the Frenchman plans for a major title charge next season.
According to the Metro, Barcelona’s President Jose Maria Bartomeu has claimed the club is yet to receive any official bid for the Spanish attacker and has debunk every transfer rumour of the 28-year-old leaving the Camp Nou to Manchester United.
‘The team is what it is,’ said Bartomeu.
‘It’s been put together. We have the team that our coa ch wanted – it’s done and completed.
‘We don’t foresee any departures from the team. I’ve read many things about a Pedro departure but no one has officially addressed our club. The squad is complete.’
Pedro on the other hand last season, has struggled for playing time as he is behind Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez in the pecking order.
Fichajes.net claim the 27-year-old is reportedly keen to land a high salary and believes he can only get that from a Premier League club.
Wenger, learning the reduced fee for Pedro is sure to move quickly for the pacy winger to rejoin him with Alexis Sanchez.
