Arsenal legend Lee Dixon has welcomed the imminent arrival of Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Dixon firmly believes Higuain would provide Arsenal with extra quality should he join.

"If it comes off [Higuain signing for Arsenal], hopefully from an Arsenal point of view, he's quality through and through," Dixon told Sky Sports News.

"He will score goals there's no doubt about that.

"He will get chances at Arsenal because they do create chances, they play his type of game so I think he'll fit in really well."
