Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea could be set for a three-way transfer battle this summer after long time target Gonzalo Higuain told current club Napoli that he wants to leave when the transfer market reopens in July, according to the Daily Star.
The Argentine striker is looking to make his way out of the San Paolo in the coming weeks, thus alerting a number of top sides from across Europe.
He will likely hold talks with his brother, agent and club president Aurelio De Laurentiis over the next few days about his future, but reports in Italy are claiming that an exit will be imminent.
The three English sides are interested in bringing him to the Premier League, but they will have to contend with the likes of Paris Saint Germain and Juventus, who also want to snap him up.
Higauin is believed to be valued at around £29m this summer, and any club looking to sign him will have to meet Napoli’s valuation.
