I watched the Chelsea/Liverpool match the other day, and I must say I was very impressed with Luis Suarez.
Yes, the Uruguayan’s a very controversial figure, but I must admit that he’s a top class striker.
His work-rate is nothing short of incredible; he’s very skilful and has great pace and stamina which enables him to latch on to through and loose balls. He doesn’t neglect his defensive duties either and always wants the ball. In fact, in a couple of incidents during the match at Stamford Bridge, the 25-year-old was tracking back and the next thing you knew he was up the other end having an attempt on goal.
If you haven’t guessed already, I am a big Suarez fan. He, in my opinion, is on the same level as Wayne Rooney and Sergio Aguero.
The latest player to be linked with a move to The Emirates is Edin Dzeko.
I feel the City striker’s not the kind of forward Arsenal need though, as the Bosnian is very similar to Marouane Chamakh and Olivier Giroud. They are all target men who love to hold up play and win aerial battles. But we need someone who can get past defends and get on the end of the through ball. We need a striker with electric pace, and to me Dzeko does not fit the bill.
In my opinion, we should do all we can to land either Jermain Defoe or Luis Suarez – this is the type of striker we desperately need at the club.
Both are realistic targets as Defoe looks unsettled under Andre Villas Boas, while I truly believe Suarez will almost certainly be looking for a new club should Liverpool endure another dull season.
Let’s see what happens.
