Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Barcelona forward Pedro according to the Daily Express. We all know that Arsenal are in need of a new striker in January to help take the pressure off Olivier Giroud but is a player like Pedro what we need?

It is being suggested that Pedro is unhappy with the lack of playing time at Barcelona and he wants to play more regularly in a bid to secure his place in the Spanish side for the upcoming World Cup.

Pedro has a £125million buyout clause which I am sure Arsenal, nor any other club would meet for the 26-year old. A loan move may turn out to be the best possible option.

My worry with Pedro is that he is more of a wide attacking forward as he plays either on the left or the right. He is also capable of playing down the middle but that is not his best position. We already have a lot of great attacking options coming in from out wide and from midfield, meaning that Pedro would be a nice to have and not a necessity.

Wenger needs to go out and bring in an out-and-out striker like Benzema, Llorente or Ba.

    Barca did make him that “humiliate” buy out clause (because he ain’t worth that much), but than put this “125M” pounds man in a warm sit on the bench regularly after they get the 50 M pounds Neymar. Well, I don’t know which is funnier Barca or the buy out clause, but I think Pedro’s pricetag should just down to 12,5 M pounds right now. Fair enough?

    Yes, I agree that we need an out and out striker like benzema,not like Pedro …

    Liorente or Ba r not the strikers we need but we need Lewandoski or suarez in january.and relying on one striker Giroud is like ajoke for someone who is competing for trophy meaning we r not likely to win premier league this season and if you think am wrong lets waite till the end of december after playing city , chelssea and newcastle thats when we shall know we cable of winning the cup. i love the current form of arsenal i enjoy watching them buut i dont c us winning it
