Arsenal fans may have seen many of our fancied targets being taken by other clubs, but believe me there are still lots of talented players out there. One particular favourite target of Arsenal fans is Gonzalo Higuain, who we should have nabbed a couple of years ago.
Gonzalo was absolutely amazing for Napoli last season, but with the economics situation not so good in Serie A compared to the Premiership it would be little surprise if the Italians cashed in this summer.
This is what was posted on Football-Italia.net : Arsenal invited Napoli to a meeting on Thursday so they can discuss Gonzalo Higuain, who reportedly wants to move to England.
The Gunners were reported to have made an appealing offer of €60-65m plus Olivier Giroud in exchange for the Argentinian star.
According to pundit Ciro Venerato, speaking to Radio CRC, the offer will only be presented formally on Thursday.
Coach Arsene Wenger requested a meeting on that day with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis and sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli. The group should get together in London.
As well as the offer for the club, Arsenal are also willing to offer Higuain himself a salary of €8m yearly for the next four seasons.
Venerato claims that Higuain finds the option quite to his liking and would look favourably on a move to the Premier League.
If Wenger does pull off a signing like Higuain in the near future, all we be forgiven!
