first_img1 Pedro in action for Barcelona Barcelona star Pedro was on the brink of joining Arsenal at the end of last season and is back on Arsene Wenger’s radar, according to reports in Spain.The Spain international reportedly held talks with the north London club before the World Cup last summer but the Gunners’ representatives could not convince the Catalan giants to cash in on the forward.Sources close to the 27-year-old have revealed Pedro is still keen to play in the Premier League and fears his first-team spot may be under threat with the imminent return of record signing Luis Suarez, to join an attacking line-up already boasting household names Lionel Messi and Neymar.With a growing list of injury victims this term, Arsenal boss Wenger is set to go back into the transfer market in January and the acquisition of Pedro would be a major boost for the club’s Premier League and Champions League credentials.Neither Pedro or his representatives have given any indication over whether he is happy to stay at Barcelona, the club where he began his career, but new coach Luis Enrique has promised a major overhaul of his squad at the Nou Camp.last_img read more
