Liverpool have entered the race to sign out of favour Barcelona winger Pedro Rodriguez according to the Express.

The winger who fell down the pecking order following the arrival of Luis Suarez and the emergence of Munir El Haddadi  has already raised uncertainty about his Barcelona future

“I would like to have finished my career here but we will have to see what happens”’

 “There are offers for me this summer and the situation is difficult. Any player wants to have playing time but it is getting more and more difficult with every season that passes.”

Arsenal and Chelsea have reportedly shown interest in helping him out of the club, but are yet to match his £22million release clause.

With Liverpool’s £49million sale of Raheem Sterling to Manchester City, they now have the finances to sign Pedro as a replacement for the British transfer record holder; and are set to take advantage of the delay from their Premier League rivals to swoop in for the forward. However, they would have their work cut out trying to convince Pedro to join them without Champions League football.

The fleet footed forward who can play everywhere in attack has made 204 appearances for Barcelona, scoring 58 goals since making his debut in 2008 and has also represented Spain 51 times scoring 16 goals with an amazing 21 titles, including 5 league titles, 3 Champions League titles, 1 World Cup and 1 European Championship.
