Arsenal and Manchester United to lock horns over striker

Higuain.jpgArsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern look to ruffle a few feathers after talkSPORT revealed they are keeping tabs on Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain.

The Argentinian international has been heavily linked to leave Serie A and Manchester United were previously considered as favourites.

But now the Gunners are putting themselves into contention as they are seeking to give Olivier Giroud more support and competition for a starting place.

Whilst United are looking to freshen up their attacking options, with Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie set to depart the club.

Higuain’s availability has been talked about more and more with Napoli looking set to miss out on the Champions League.

But despite Rafa Benitez’s disappointing season in Italy, he will be keen to keep hold of the 27-year-old, because the former Real Madrid striker has scored over 20 goals for second season in a row.
