Arsenal have been handed a huge boost in their pursuit of Napoli star and long-time target Gonzalo Higuain this summer as it looks as though he can leave for just £30m.
The former Real Madrid man has been in exceptional form in Serie A since his move from the Bernabeu last season, and now looks to be available as the Italians hope to cash in on him.
Although Arsenal already have the in-form Olivier Giroud starring upfront in their side, it seems Arsene Wenger may want to splash out on the signing of Higuain, who could be an improvement on last summer’s signing Danny Welbeck in that position.
The England international has only scored eight goals this season since joining from Manchester United and does not look like much of a backup option at present, with Higuain likely to provide more in the way of healthy competition for places in attack.
£30m does not seem too much to pay for a proven player like Higuain, with the Daily Mirror claiming Arsenal are still interested in signing the 27-year-old.
