Liverpool are the latest club said to be interested in securing highly-rated Argentine forward Gonzalo Higuain, according to reports from the Express.
The Napoli forward has attracted attention from almost all of Europe’s top clubs following his record breaking season in Serie A, in which the former Real Madrid man beat Gunnar Nelson’s long standing record of goals in a single season.
Higuain managed an incredible 36 Serie A goals – including a phenomenal hat-trick in the final game of the season – to beat the record, and added a further two in Napoli’s brief spell in the Europa League to take his total to 38 in all competitions.
Currently at the Copa America in the USA with national side Argentina, rumours were further ignited when Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was pictured watching the game with his agent and brother Nicolas Higuain.
With Napoli – according to Beln Sports – allegedly close to securing Porto and Mexico striker Hector Herrera as his replacement, the Reds’ fans in the Tavern have been jumping for the joy.
