Barcelona have publicly stated its intention to keep the Spanish international, however Metro reports that the 27-year-old is unhappy with his current status at the Nou Camp after dropping behind Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez in the pecking order.
According to the report, several Premier League clubs have been notified that Pedro could become available for a cut-price fee of £7m this summer, with the player having just one year to run on his current deal with the La Liga champions.
Pedro would certainly fit Brendan Rodgers’ style of play and could prove to be a cheap replacement for Raheem Sterling should the youngster leave Anfield in the summer.
He has struggled for minutes at the La Liga champions this season but has chipped in to help Catalan giants to a league title and Champions League final appearance next month.
The La Masia graduate has started just 15 league games this season but has chipped in with six goals and as many assists, showing enough to suggest he could be an excellent option for the Reds next season.
