The Frenchman believes the striker and Suarez could form a great bond.
After trying and failing to sign both Gonzalo Higuain and Luis Suarez this summer, Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has given the 26-year-old’s opinion on the pair.
Giroud has admitted that the France international would rather have seen Suarez playing alongside the forward at the Emirates Stadium than Higuain.
“When the name of Suarez was circulating, I honestly thought it was a good thing for the team. He would have been complementary,” the Frenchman was quoted by the Metro.
“Suarez can also play on one side [out wide]. It would have been difficult for me with another player.
“We [Gonzalo Higuain and I] would have been in direct competition because he is a pure central striker.”
Giroud has been in superb form this season after an indifferent first campaign in north London and the attacker is joint top-scorer in the Premier League.
Along with Suarez’s team-mate at Liverpool, Daniel Sturridge, the Gunners star has netted in every match in the league so far in 2013/14.
This has included scoring the winner against local rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Giroud also benefited from the arrival of Mesut Ozil, as the German provided an assist for the striker’s goal against Sunderland on Saturday.
If Suarez were also to join the club then Arsene Wenger’s men could certainly be regarded as title contenders – something that has already been banded about after the club record £42.4m arrival of Ozil on transfer deadline day.
