Liverpool has decided to ramp up its pursuit of midfielder Pedro, and his transfer value is rumored to be at £18m.
Pedro recently helped lead Barcelona to the UEFA Champions League title while scoring six goals in La Liga matches, as Barcelona coasted to a La Liga championship as well.
Liverpool is in need of midfield depth, as they have already lost longtime veteran Steven Gerrard.
They are also expected to lose versatile scoring midfielder Raheem Sterling, who will likely leave for Manchester City if Liverpool accepts their £50m transfer bid.
Liverpool will be facing competition for the 27-year-old Barcelona midfielder, as Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City are also reported to be chasing him.
Barcelona would be a losing vital piece to their championship squad if Pedro leaves, as he has made over 200 appearances for the team.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is reported to be keen on luring Pedro to England, according to a Spanish report.
Pedro would bring extensive experience for a team looking for a Premier League title, as he has won six Champions League titles and 10 La Liga titles.
