Wolverhampton Wanderers should not splash out €18.3m (roughly £16.4m) on Gonzalo Higuain after transfer news emerged from Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness) that the Midlands club are interested in signing the Juventus striker in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Juventus are apparently looking at a possible sale from a financial point of view, as Higuain only has one year left on his current contract which will allegedly not be renewed – meaning that this is the last chance for the Italian giants to make some money from him without incurring too much of a loss. Corriere dello Sport explained that Higuaín and his contract are still worth €18.3m (£16.4m) on the Serie A team’s books, which is the fee that they would apparently be seeking on the transfer market.
The Argentina international has arguably not fared well in the league so far this season, scoring just five goals and making four assists in 23 appearances, according to Transfermarkt. Despite gaining Premier League experience with his loan spell at Chelsea, the Blues decided not to sign him permanently, as he netted a relatively unimpressive five strikes in 14 games.

Although Higuain has had the goal scoring touch before for big clubs, he is 32 now and not getting any younger. He would also do well to displace Raul Jimenez in Nuno Espirito Santo’s side given the 29-year old’s very impressive scoring record for Wolves.
