Higuain
Higuain could accept Arsenal move.

Gonzalo Higuain is ready to accept offers from Arsenal this summer, accorcing to reports from Italian media.

Napoli’s president on Thursday gave the Gunners green signal to make an offer for Higuain as the 29-year-old Argentine looks most likely to move away from the Stadio San Paolo.

Gazzetta dello Sport claim the Argentinian striker would seriously consider joining the north London giants, with his brother Nicolas and father Jorge in charge of dealings.

It’s believed that Higuain sees Juventus as the most appealing option this summer, but Paris Saint-Germain are also in the race to sign the former Real Madrid attacker.

However, Napoli’s reluctance in selling to a direct Serie A rival like Juventus could help Arsene Wenger in landing the star.

However, while Gooners are crying out for Wenger to bring in attacking reinforcements, Higuain’s £78million release clause may prove too much for the Frenchman.

One of the positions that still needs addressing, however, is Arsenal’s up front.

The Gunners still seriously lack a clinical, world-class forward to make the difference in the tight games.

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain could fill that void.

The Argentinean previously came close to joining Arsenal in 2013, although the Gunners baulked at Real Madrid’s £35million asking price and he joined Napoli instead.

Since then, Higuain has gone on to break several Serie A records and he scored an incredible 36 league goals in just 35 games this season.

His lethal finishing is exactly what Arsene Wenger’s side need.

His prolific campaign has not been a one off for Higuain though. The French-born striker has scored a phenomenal 71 goals in 104 games since joining Napoli in 2013, while his record at Real Madrid was also impressive as he bagged 107 goals in 190 games.

Even if he only performs at his best for two more seasons, his goals can make all the difference for Arsenal and Wenger knows it.
