Arsenal have emerged as front-runners to sign Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, but how greatly would he improve their attack?
The London club's main striker Olivier Giroud managed 11 goals and three assists in 34 Premier league appearances last term, with Suarez racking up an impressive 23 goals and five assists, in one less game.
Not only does Suarez have a knack of racking up goals, he contributes greatly to all over areas of attack - this is highlighted with his average of 2.7 key passes a game whilst Giroud only managed an average of 1 key pass per game.
One of the Uruguayans main strengths is his dribbling ability, something at Giroud could certainly improve on. Suarez is widely viewed as the best dribbler in the Premier League, averaging 2.9 successful dribbles a game, whilst Giroud is majorly lagging behind with a measly average of 0.3 successful dribbles per game.
Suarez's ability to create chances for himself is one of his main strengths, especially prior to the arrival of Brazilian Philippe Coutinho Liverpool largely relied on him to carry their attacking threat, whilst Giroud was a relatively below-par performer in a system which suits a player of his style.
The arrival of a player of Suarez's quality to any club would be a massive boost, but with Arsenal seemingly lacking a adequate front-man the want-away Liverpool man seems the perfect figure to help bring their trophy drought to an abrupt end.
