Chelsea winger Pedro is reportedly considering his options ahead of a probable exit from Stamford Bridge.
With less than six months left on his contract and having dropped down the pecking order since Frank Lampard's arrival, Pedro is expected to find a new club in 2020.
The former - owned by David Beckham - are currently preparing for their first-ever MLS campaign, with the search continuing for high-profile additions.
Vissel Kobe are hoping to convince Pedro to reunite with former Barcelona and Spain teammate Andreas Iniesta at the Japanese outfit.
However, the playmaker will not be allowed to leave in January unless Lampard is able to sign a replacement.
