Barcelona forward Pedro hopes Cesc Fabregas will sign for the Catalan club and believes the Arsenal midfielder would adapt very quickly to life back at the Nou Camp.

Pedro and Fabregas are currently away with the Spain squad at the World Cup and the Barca youngster says his international team-mate is focused only on the national's side campaign in South Africa at the moment.

But Pedro told Marca: "Cesc is doing fantastic, he's thinking only about the national team and he's relaxed. Of course I would like to have him at Barca."

He added: "He has been playing away (from Spain) for a long time, he knows the club and he would adapt quickly."

Barca have made Fabregas their main target this summer and have had an initial 35million bid for the Arsenal captain turned down by the Gunners.

The Catalans have signed one Spain player in the current window, though, following the arrival of striker David Villa.

Villa, who scored both goals and missed a penalty as Spain beat Honduras 2-0 on Monday, arrived in a big-money deal from Valencia prior to the World Cup.

And Pedro believes the striker will prove to be a great signing for Pep Guardiola's side.

"He's a great player, a great striker who scores lots of goals. His movement is very good and he will adapt very quickly to the team," he said.

"He'll be great. His arrival is extraordinary news for us."
