Career

On 19 October 2018, before he had even made his senior debut, Premier League club Watford agreed a deal to sign Pedro in January 2020 on a five-year contract. On 28 March 2019, Pedro made his senior debut for Fluminense as a stoppage-time substitute in a 2–1 loss to arch-rivals Flamengo in the Campeonato Carioca. A month later on 29 April, he made his league debut as a late substitute in the 1–0 loss to Goiás. He then proceeded to fire seven goals in his next four games including a hat trick in the Copa Sudamericana. On 30 October 2019 it was announced that he had received his UK work permit and would sign for Watford in January 2020.
