Luis Suarez has gathered a rather unwanted reputation for himself in the past couple of seasons.
Biting chunks out of people and accused of racist behaviour to mention a couple of controversial moments, but he has proved his worth by his prowess in front of goal, notching an outstanding 26 goals in 39 appearances last season.
His ability to run at defences through the middle and create chances is second to none in the Premier League. Outstanding goalscoring record, amazing flair and unbelievable dribbling skills, he is a player that every team would love.
When it comes to football he is a must-buy player, but is he worth the £50m price tag that Liverpool have set when you bring in his on and off field antics?
Arsenal have been lacking a striker who can torment the opposition’s defence. With Olivier Giroud coming in last season, there is no doubt he possesses great qualities for a striker, but a targetman has not worked for Arsenal.
Arsenal have failed to produce a great striker, and hold on to them, since the days of Thierry Henry. Henry loved to run at the defence of the opposition, had the ability to create his own chances and also created many chances for other players, much like Suarez has the ability to do.
There is no doubt that Suarez would be a tremendous acquisition for Arsenal, or any team for that matter. Many are of the belief that Arsene Wenger is the man to calm the controversial side of Suarez.
Martin Keown has been very vocal in this topic, saying: “Wenger creates a habit of behaviour that everyone around him follows. He is a very calm person and everyone else follows that example. He makes good decisions based on calmness. He treats his players with respect and creates a learning environment.”
So many players have arrived under Wenger as average players, and he has managed to turn them into world-class strikers. Robin van Persie is a prime example of that.
Suarez could bang in the goals for the Gunners, but will undoubtedly bring with him a great deal of drama unless Wenger can sort that side of Suarez’s football out.
Suarez has the ability and skill to be the lone striker that Wenger has so desperately wanted to find. Suarez has a great work rate, great dribbling and finishing skills, superb flair and an outstanding eye for goal. He is the missing link for Arsenal and can be the man to help them finally put a trophy in the dusty cabinet.
