Barcelona forward Pedro says he has received offers to leave the Nou Camp this summer.

The Spain international, who is a reported target of top Premier League clubs, is considering leaving Barca after 10 years at the club.

Pedro started in just 25 of Barca's 60 official games in the 2014/15 campaign and the 27-year-old been constantly linked to Liverpool.

"It's true there are offers and it's a difficult situation for me at Barcelona," Pedro told Spanish sports newspaper El Mundo Deportivo.

"You want to have minutes but there are less opportunities every year and each time it's more difficult.

"I would have liked to have retired here..... we will see what happens."

Pedro signed a contract extension at Barca until June 2019 before last month's Champions League final in Berlin.

However, he did not play a certain number of games this past season and that automatically reduced his buyout clause from 150 million euros (£106m) to 30m (£21m).

"It's true that both parties decided to lower the clause," said the forward.

"Over the next few days we will speak and look to see what the best option is."

One man who looks set to snub a move to the Premier League this summer is Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan after he signed a new five-year deal at the the Serie A club.

The 27-year-old Belgium international has put pen to paper on a new contract which will see him stay at the Stadio Olimpico until the end of the 2019-20 season.

Nainggolan, a January 2014 recruit from Serie A rivals Cagliari, has been rewarded for a series of impressive performances during last season when he made 46 appearances for Rudi Garcia's side and scored five goals.

His exploits in midfield helped Roma finish runners-up to league champions Juventus and the Eternal City club's hierarchy have offered him fresh terms in order to ward off reported suitors including Liverpool and Manchester United.

"I'm delighted - this is what I wanted. I think the club is happy too," Nainggolan told the club's official website.
