Arsenal officials in Madrid to tie up £22m Higuain deal with medical due today

By on June 24, 2013

It seems Gonzalo Higuain’s proposed moved to Arsenal is edging closer with several reports suggesting a £22m deal could be completed early this week.

Sky Sports News are claiming that their sources indicate Arsenal officials flew to Madrid over the weekend to finalise a deal for the Argentinean hitman after agreeing personal terms with the player, while Spanish radion station Radio Cadena YSKL used their Twitter account to reveal that the move has now been completed and Higuain will undergo a medical today.

This comes off the back of days of speculation with several media outlets claiming we were closing in on the striker, so it does look as though we could be about to seal our first big-money signing of the summer and with it, break our transfer record.

The signing of Higuain would not only be a huge boost for the fans but also a massive sign of intent by the club that they mean business this summer. The 25-year-old would be an excellent addition to the squad and would give the supports real belief that we are finally heading in the right direction again after years of stagnation.

If and when we do officially confirm Higuain’s signature, it’s important that we follow it up with a couple of other big names. If we could bring in Marouane Fellaini, a top drawer defender and perhaps another versatile attacker/attacking midfielder, then I think we’ll have an excellent squad going into next season and have a great chance of ending that much talked about trophy drought.

    Sky sports managed to dig up an ex arsenal player to say this player not so good to suit their anti arsenal agenda

      This isn’t Fifa you know. I hardly doubt you’ve ever watched any of these minus maybe Joveitic. Ogbonna is so overrated and isn’t that good in real lifw, Joveitic is average at best and Lalmela, again. Overrated.

    The press has not help the matter,sighted at airport in England and lots of rumors about this guy,any way we must sign PLAYERS if we want to be a force in premiership.

    This would be a great signing for a club that is in urgent need of a 20 goal a season striker! If wenger can add maybe Fellani and wanyama I think we could really challenge again!! Also there’s not been many stories about it but matuidi at PSG has only one year on his contract and could be purchased at a cut price! Pray that wenger makes the right signings and we will end this trophy drought #COYG

    I don’t why Mr Wenger is delaying to complete the deal of Higuain, day are going nothing has yet done why not to harry up and turn to Rooney, Fellaini & others.

    To make room for our 3 top targets
    1. CF – Higuain
    2. HM – Fellaini
    3. AM – Rooney or Fabregas
    we need to sell 2 players Park and Bendtner will do

    Then we need to sell, 3 more to land our next targets, Chamakh, Santos and Mannone will do

    4. Top class GK
    5. Top Class RB
    6. Top class CB

    only if we plan more signings do we need to consider selling, djourou, diaby, gervinho

    Arsenal just need to sign experience players.If Arsenal sign Higuain,Fellaini,Rooney,Williams,Cesar & if possible Illarramendi and Nani they will win trophies,come 2013/2014 season.
