Arsenal transfer target Matias Suarez admits he's dreaming of a 'big transfer', but is yet to hear from any interested parties.

The Argentine striker has been linked with a handful of clubs across Europe, with Fiorentina, Marseille and the Gunners recently reported to be monitoring the 23-year-old.

And, whilst the Anderlecht forward forward is aware that he's on the radar of several clubs, his aim is to win the Belgian Pro League this season.

"I do dream of a big transfer, but at the moment it is quiet. I want to be champions with Anderlecht," he said.

Reports in The Metro in December claimed Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had sent scouts to the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium, with the Frenchman scouring Europe in an effort to bolster his attacking line.

With Gervinho heading to the African Cup of Nations and Park Chu-Young failing to find form at the Emirates Stadium, Wenger will be aware that goalscoring pressure has firmly been placed on the shoulders of club captain Robin Van Persie.

And, whilst the Dutchman delivered in north London in 2011, the arrival of club legend Thierry Henry on loan is a sure sign that the Arsenal boss is trying to spread the burden of expectation at the club.

The New York Red Bulls forward provides a short-term fix however, with Lukas Podolski, Moussa Sow and Hugo Rodallega all linked with more permanent moves to the Gunners.

Suarez is another name to add to the lost of possible Arsenal additions in the opening month of 2012, but only Wenger will know where his priorities lie over the next three-and-a-half weeks.
