Liverpool and Manchester United are ready to snap up Pedro, as the Barcelona star reportedly says he would leave his boyhood club to play in the Premier League.

Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo say the 26-year-old is pondering a switch to England. Ligue 1 giants Monaco have also been linked to the Spain international, but it is believed he would move on from Barcelona to sign for a Premier League side.

The Mirror reports that United and Liverpool have been put on alert, but the Express say that Arsenal would also be in the running if Pedro decides to depart the Nou Camp. A loan move is what they have reported as being a likely deal for the Gunners and Liverpool.

Pedro has scored seven goals in 25 appearances for the reigning Spanish champions this season, but has struggled to establish himself in the first-team under new manager Gerardo Martino, with Alexis Sanchez and Neymar occupying the front positions alongside Lionel Messi.
