Matias Suarez
Suarez has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

Matias Suarez has insisted he will not leave Anderlecht in the January transfer window, even if the forward were given the option of moving to Arsenal.

Suarez has starred for the Belgian side since making the move from Argentinian club Atletico Belgrano in 2008, scoring 25 goals in 93 appearances.

Arsenal have recently been connected with the 23-year-old, as Arsene Wenger looks for more firepower in the side, but Suarez insists he will not be swayed away from Anderlecht's aim to win the Jupiler League trophy.

"I will not leave Anderlecht in the winter transfer window, not even if Arsenal make a move for me," Suarez told Sporza.

"I want to help the club achieve their goals this season. Things have been going pretty well, and we can achieve some great things. I don't want to let the club down now. If I leave Anderlecht, it won't be during the winter break."

Arsenal are planning a January without Gervinho or Marouane Chamakh, as the pair both prepare for the Africa Cup of Nations.

And though Thierry Henry has been signed by the club on a loan deal to get the club through in the short term, Chamakh has admitted numerous times that he is only interested in staying at Arsenal until the end of the season if he can get more game time.

That doesn't look likely though with Robin van Persie continuing to star for the side though, and if Chamakh pushes hard enough for an exit, Wenger will be back in the market for an up-front player if he hopes to keep depth in the side.

Suarez would appear to fit the bill perfectly for a fresh face at Arsenal; the 23 year old is still young and full of potential, and if he can show that potential in the Premier League, the starlet may get a nod to debut for the Agentina national side as well.

But with Anderlecht currently first in the Belgian league table, Suarez will be hoping to help the side win the title before considering a move to Arsenal, let alone another club at all.
