Arsenal In Pole Position To Land €40m Hitman – Reports
According to reports, Arsenal are in pole position to sign long-term target Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli this summer.
We’ve long been linked with Higuain and came close to signing him from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 but our failed bid to land Luis Suarez allowed Napoli the time to swoop in an seal a deal.
The 27-year-old has continued his fine form in front of goal with 48 strikes in 91 appearances for the Serie A outfit but speculation suggests he’s unsettled in Italy and is looking for a move this summer.
Several top clubs are believed to be keen with Juventus understood to be holding talks with the strikers agent, but the Mirror cite reports coming out of Italy that suggest Arsenal are in fact leading the race for his signature.
The news comes just a week after separate reports in Spain claimed that Arsene Wenger was lining-up a €40m (£29m) bid for the Argentinean international, so the papers certainly believe their is genuine interest.
Despite the superb form of Olivier Giroud, I think we need to add another top class forward this summer to have a squad capable of winning the league and Champions League, and Higuain would be an excellent addition.
His goal-scoring record is proven wherever he’s played, with career stats of 199 goals in 392 games testament to this, so I would personally love to see him arrive at the Emirates this summer.
