Liverpool striker Luis Suarez didn't dream of joining Arsenal, but Real Madrid and is ready to wait for that to happen, according to Edinson Cavani.

The Paris Saint-Germain record signing was not surprised that Suarez made a goalscoring return to the Liverpool team, bagging a brace in the 3-1 victory over Sunderland last Sunday, as he sees his fellow Uruguay international as the best striker in the Premier League.

Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for Suarez this summer as he angled for a move away from Anfield and Arsene Wenger's side even had an offer worth £40,000,001 turned down.

The 26-year-old publicly stated his desire to leave Liverpool for the Gunners, but manager Brendan Rodgers and owner John W Henry stood firm and rejected all advances out of Emirates Stadium.

Cavani has now revealed that Suarez wasn't dreaming of a move to the north London club, btu only has eyes for one club - Real Madrid.

"It is no surprise to me at all that Luis has come back for Liverpool and is scoring goals right away," he is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

"He is the most complete striker in England - and one of the most complete strikers in the world. Ability and confidence is no issue for him, he will score a lot of goals this season I am sure.

"I am sure Liverpool fans are very happy Luis stayed - he will be a big player for them. I think Arsenal was not Luis's dream move, maybe if it had been Real Madrid then it would have been a different outcome - but of course Madrid were concentrating on a different target this summer.
