Aston Villa have been linked with a move for Gonzalo Higuain as Dean Smith looks to bolster his attacking options.
The 32-year-old striker joined Juventus in 2016 and he has since gone on to find success in winning the Serie A title three times, whilst also finishing as a runner-up in the Champions League final in 2017.
During his time with the Old Lady, the Argentine goalscorer also spent two loan spells away from the club with AC Milan and Premier League side Chelsea.
Appearing 32 times for the Turin club last season, Higuain netted eight goals and supplied four assists but new Juve boss Andrea Pirlo has now revealed that the striker will leave the club this summer.
Villa desperately need to bolster their attack, which includes Wesley, Mbwana Samatta and Keinan Davis, ahead of the new season and signing someone of Higuain’s experience and quality could be a real coup.
Reacting to the club’s reported interest in Higuain, these fans took to Twitter to give their opinions on the rumour, with one sarcastically predicting a “double swoop for him and Messi” after the Argentina striker indicated that he wants to leave Barcelona.
He’ll be 33 in December. May as well just resign Gabby.
