Arsenal fans sobbing into their napkins at the bar at the Transfer Tavern after another Champions League disaster have had more reason to cry this morning, after the agent of a reported Arsenal target appeared to rule out a transfer.
TalkSport runs with quotes today that Gonzalo Higuain is happy at Napoli, per his brother and agent Nicholas, and is not contemplating the idea of an exit from the Serie A side.
Back in 2013 punters were crying out for Arsenal to sign the Argentine striker when it emerged he was set to leave Real Madrid but he eventually joined the Naples outfit, who were then managed by current Real boss Rafael Benitez.
Napoli’s failure to qualify for the Champions League this season, and Benitez’ subsequent exit, led to speculation that the South American could be on the move again- but his agent has said Higuain is happy in Naples and is working well alongside new boss Maurizio Salli.
Arsenal fans, how different would your current campaign have been if you had a proven striker like Gonzalo Higuain? Let us know in the comments below!
