Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking excited at the latest claim coming from Metro who seem to think that Arsene Wenger is willing to open talks with Napoli over one of their best players.
Gonzalo Higuain reportedly wants to leave Serie A and Rafael Benitez’s Napoli, experienceinglife in the Premier League instead after already winning the La Liga title during his spell at Real Madrid.
The Argentine forward had been linked with Liverpool in a potential swap deal involving Mario Balotelli but after Napoli made it clear they had no interest in the Italian, it seems that Arsenal could well be the destination for Pipita.
A deal to bring the forward to the Emirates Stadium would cost Arsenal in the region of £31.2 million and we think that is small change considering the prices that top forwards go for these days.
This figure is certainly less than the Gunners would have to pay for another rumoured target – Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.
Arsenal fans. Do you think Higuain could boost your title hopes? Will you end up losing out to Liverpool in the race for the forward? Let us know your thoughts below.
