Arsenal host Napoli in their first Emirates Cup match, with the spotlight likely to be on the Serie A side’s new signing Gonzalo Higuain, likely to make an appearance up front.

Higuain moved to Napoli from Real Madrid in the summer for a fee of around €35 million, but was almost snapped up by the Gunners.

Indeed, the Argentina international could well have found himself on the opposite side in this match, had La Liga’s runners up not dramatically raised their asking price upon Napoli’s interest becoming apparent.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will hope to prove a point to fans and players alike that his team can perform to a high level without yet having made a big signing – but should Higuain score for the opposition at Emirates Stadium, there is sure to be an outcry amongst the fans.
