Luis Suarez
Luis Suarez has taken part in Liverpool's pre-season schedule but the striker is believed to want a move to Arsenal.

Diego Forlan believes that Luis Suarez would be the perfect fit for Arsenal as the club continue their pursuit of the Uruguayan.

Suarez has made it clear that he is hoping to exit Merseyside in the summer as recent reports claim the controversial hitman seeks Champions League football.

Liverpool cannot offer the Uruguay international any European football in their upcoming campaign and Arsenal have so far had two bids turned down for the striker. However, they have reportedly not yet given up on landing the controversial forward as manager Arsene Wenger looks to build a side capable of challenging for major honours.

Forlan believes that if Suarez made the move to the Emirates, it would be a brilliant match for both the player and club as Arsenal seek to break their now-eight season long trophyless spell.

"If they manage to sign Luis, then I think, with the players they already have, they would be serious title contenders again," Suarez's Uruguayan teammate said, according to Metro.

"Only Luis knows what his plans are but he would be a great signing for Arsenal."

When Robin van Persie left the club last summer Wenger already had replacements in place in the form of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud waiting to take centre stage up front.

But neither have set the Premier League alight with their goal scoring, with Theo Walcott taking the honours of top scorer for the Gunners last season.

Forlan argues that while Arsenal do have some great players in their squad, having a player like Suarez will put them on the same footing as the Premier League's current best.

He explained: "Arsenal are a very strong team but, for the last years, they have not been able to compete with Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea for the title.

"They have had very good players but have maybe lacked that one special player who you need to win a league as strong as the Premier League.

"United have had Wayne Rooney and City have had Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez but Arsenal have struggled since Thierry Henry left."
