Arsenal are reportedly close to sealing a deal with Real for Higuain with the striker's father revealing that talks between both parties are at an advanced stage.
Dixon believes that Higuain, who has scored 122 goals in 266 games for Real Madrid, will thrive as a striker at Arsenal.
"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."
Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen, however, has rumoured to be on the way out of the Emirates after losing his first-team spot last season following the emerging partnership between Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker, but Dixon has urged the Belgian to stay at the club.
"I think he [Vermaelen] should stay and fight for his place," Dixon continued. "We are now starting to see the fruits of Steve Bould's work over this last year.
"They were a lot more solid towards the end of the season and I think he can benefit from that because he's a great defender but as a team defender I think he's got things to learn and that's where Steve's knowledge will be utilised."
