Former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan believes Uruguay teammate Luis Suarez would transform Arsenal. The Gunners are pushing Liverpool to part with the star striker.

"Only Luis knows what his plans are - but he would be a great signing for Arsenal," said Forlan to the Mirror.

"Of course, Arsenal are a very strong team, but, for the last years, they have not been able to compete with Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea for the title.

"They have had very good players, but have maybe lacked that one special player who you need to win a league as strong as the Premier League.

"United have had Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie and City have had Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez. But Arsenal have struggled since Thierry Henry left.

"If they manage to sign Luis, then I think, with the players they already have, they would be serious title contenders again."
