Arsenal have been linked with the Argentina international striker Gonzalo Higuain before of course, and according to the Arsenal transfer rumours at the time, a couple of years ago, the deal was all but done until Napoli swooped in with a better offer and took him from Real Madrid to Serie A.
Whether that was true or not, the Gunners are being linked with the talented front man again, this time as an alternative in case our reported chase of Benzema falls through. Some reports are suggesting that it is Edinson Cavani of PSG that Wenger will turn to, however, but I think Higuain would be the ideal choice.
Here is a link to a stats comparison from Squawka.com between Higuain and Benzema were both playing for Real Madrid in the 2012-13 season. Man Madrid fans were not happy that they sold Higuain, with Mourinho preferring the Frenchman, as the Argentine actually scored more goals from fewer games and less time on the pitch.
The stats do show that Benzema rated better in assists and creating chances, but is it not a player to finish off chances that we really need? We already have the likes of Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil and all doing the creative side of things. And on that point, Ozil has already had success making goals for Higuain so do you agree that he, not Cavani, would be the right choice for Arsenal?
