Arsenal is considering Buying injury-prone Star from Barcelona

Arsenal is leading the chase to buy injury-prone midfielder Pedri from La Liga giant, Barcelona.

According to Fichajes, Barca are becoming increasingly worried about Pedri’s recurring physical problems and are concerned that this could mean that he will be injury-prone throughout his career.

The 21-year-old has played just 13 games this season in all competitions due to muscular problems, contributing only two goals and one assist.

Pedri’s issue extends beyond mere participation rates; it’s the timing and duration of his injuries that pose a significant concern.

Often sidelined during crucial phases of the season or when the team needs him the most, Pedri’s recurring spells on the treatment table disrupt Barcelona’s rhythm.

The unpredictable nature of his injuries, ranging from extended layoffs to intermittent absences, raises questions about his reliability.

These injury problems have been persistent ever since 2021 when the then-teenager played a world record number of games. He clocked up a quite unprecedented 5,275 minutes during the year.

He played more games than anyone else in the world in the 2020/21 season, an immense 73. This included not just his games for Barça but also for Spain, including Euro 2020 and the Tokyo Olympics,.

The feeling is that Pedri, now 21, is suffering as a result of being played too much that year.

He remains one of the best midfielders in the world when fit. The problem is that he has rarely been fit in the last two years.

Pedri is not the only young Barcelona star to have suffered from injury recently. Fellow midfielder Gavi is also set to miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL.
