The Spanish forward has seen first-team opportunities at the Camp Nou limited this season and admitted earlier this month that he was open to the idea of move in the January transfer window.

The Gunners along with Liverpool are among a number of top European clubs monitoring Pedro's situation and the 26-year-old admitted, despite being happy at Barca, he would have to consider his future if his playing time did not improve.

“I am happy with Barcelona, but things have to be evaluated every season,” he said.
