Barcelona attacker Pedro has hailed the signing of Alexis Sanchez and feels the new arrival's presence will only help him develop into a better player.

There is stiff competition for players in Barcelona's attacking department following the arrival of Sanchez from Udinese, but Pedro is of the opinion that the strength in depth will only benefit the team.

"His arrival is a good thing because I will learn from him. All the attackers in the team will do their utmost to try and secure a starting berth. The most important thing is that we are a team though and he is an important player for us," Pedro said to El Mundo Deportivo.

"He really is a great player and it's a good thing for us to have a player of his calibre in the squad. He's one of the best players in the world and we're glad to have him."

The 22-year-old Sanchez scored once on his La Liga debut as Barcelona thrashed Villarreal 5-0.
