So I guess that the talks between Arsenal and the representatives of one of our top transfer targets of the summer have been pretty positive, as they are to be followed by a transfer bid of around £30 million for Gonzalo Higuain, according to the latest Arsenal transfer rumour being reported by the Daily Star.
The report also claims that the Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis has let it be known that he wants £37 million for the Argentina international. He is known to be a shrewd operator in the transfer market who will try to squeeze every penny out of a deal but then our own Arsene Wenger is no mug when it comes to these sort of negotiations.
Napoli paid around €40 million for the striker when they signed him from Real Madrid a couple of years ago but they did sign him to a long term deal that still has three years left to run, so they are in a strong position. But after the Gunners held talks with Higuain’s agent, who is also his brother, we must have been given some encouragement from the player.
At 27-years old Higuain should be in his prime and we know that he is a talented forward but I am not convinced that he is the man to fire us to the Premier League title. How about you?
