Chelsea are reported to be leading the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Pedro Rodriguez ahead of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.
The Spanish international who fell down the pecking order last term, due to the form of the trio of Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, has been made to rethink his future after the Spanish champions announced the signing of Athletico Madrid midfielder Arda Turan.
And it is been reported that the Spanish champions has reduced their actual asking price for the 27 years old from £100m to a staggering £22m.
That has attracted several clubs to the availability of the skillful winger. With reports suggesting that Chelsea are currently leading the race to sign the player.
It has been learnt that the Spaniard will favour a move to the premier league champions over other interested clubs.
Weather this turns out to be correct is set to be seen. Knowing that the transfer window is fully active, this might just be confirmed sooner than later.
