Tottenham Hotspur have been informed that they could land Barcelona attacker Pedro for as little as £7 million, according to The Telegraph.
According to the British newspaper, Spanish giants Barcelona have accepted that the player wants to leave in the summer transfer window due to lack of regular first-team football this season.
The 27-year-old, who rose through the ranks at the Catalan club and has won the Champions League twice, has made 34 appearances in La Liga this season, but many of them have come as a substitute.
Pedro has scored six goals and created 24 chances in those matches, while having a pass accuracy of 87% and a shot accuracy of 63%.
The arrival of Luis Suarez from Liverpool in the summer of 2014 is the main reason behind Pedro’s lack of first-team chances this campaign.
The Telegraph also claims that Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal have all been “alerted to the possibility of landing Pedro for a cut-price fee this summer”.
Pedro would be a good signing for Spurs. The Spain international, who plays as part of a front-three at Barcelona, has pace and skills which will suit the English game.
However, Spurs could struggle to compete with Arsenal and Chelsea; they cannot offer Champions League football which their London rivals can.
However, competition for places in the Arsenal and Chelsea starting line-ups is fierce, which could give Tottenham an advantage - if indeed Mauricio Pochettino’s side are interested in Pedro.
