Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal have all been alerted to the potential availability of Pedro, according to the Daily Express, with the Spanish striker having claimed he could look to leave Barcelona this summer unless he is guaranteed first-team football.

Pedro has been a long time target for the Premier League, but has repeatedly claimed that his loyalty belongs to Barcelona after spending his entire professional career there since being brought to the club as a 17-year-old.

However, recent developments at the Catalan club have suggested that that loyalty does not go both ways and Pedro now feels that he will never be trusted as a first team regular by Barca.

Successive close seasons have seen Barcelona pay out big money for the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Neymar to play in his position and while Sanchez is also linked with a move to Arsenal, Pedro believes the lack of faith in him will never change and is looking for a place that would appreciate his undoubted talents.

The Gunners seem the most likely destination at current as Arsene Wenger looks for a player that can either dovetail with Olivier Giroud up front or move into a wider attacking position with Theo Walcott set to miss the start of next season, but both Liverpool and United would look to rival them in what will prove a mighty scramble for one of the most underrated players in world football.

Pedro has scored 15 goals in 36 appearances for Barcelona this season, converting 28.3% of his shots on goal.
