Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking more than a little bit worried as Metro note that the club could well be set to miss out on one of their top targets.
The Gunners have long been chasing Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain who was their top target this summer.
It had been thought that the Argentine was basically on his way to the club and Arsenal fans were getting excited at the prospect.
Now it seems that not only are Real Madrid stalling on the move but they are also considering a move from a rival bidder.
To add to Arsene Wenger’s worries on the situation, Italian side Napoli have now entered the race for the forward and of course have a huge sum of money to spend following the sale of former star man Edinson Cavani to Paris Saint-Germain yesterday.
Wenger has not only seen his top target escape his grasp but is also facing the prospect of having to fight to keep Santi Cazorla at the Emirates Stadium with Atletico Madrid preparing a bid while Stevan Jovetic is likely to snub the North London side in favour of Manchester City.
Not only that, but Arsenal fans are also getting increasingly worried at the prospect of seeing former hero Cesc Fabregas linking up with Robin van Persie at Old Trafford. Is there any good transfer news for Arsenal fans around the corner?
Will Napoli represent Gonzalo Higuain’s new found destination this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
