Can Arsenal splash all that money for Gonzalo Higuian (picture Getty)
Arsenal are on the lookout for top quality players ahead of next season.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push next season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best in the summer to achieve his target.
Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in the summer, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks
According to reports making the round, Arsenal have been heavily linked to sign Napoli star striker Gonzalo Higuain, The Argentine international who was close to a move in summer of 2013 have opened up about leaving Napoli due Champion League Action which Napoli failed to qualify for next season having finished fifth on the table.
However Liverpool are reportedly sitting in pole position to sign the versatile striker, but with no Champion League action having finished sixth on the EPL last season, it won’t be advisable for Gonzalo Higuain to make the switch to a club where he won’t get Champions League actions.
Napoli are known to be very strict and will only allow Higuain leave if only someone bids his £67million release clause, and If he truly wants to leave he will have to do the groundwork to force a move out of Italy.
The reports also say the Gunners are keen to sign the 27-year-old striker.
In my own opinion, I doubt if it’s going to be possible for Wenger to splash all that money for a striker although he is a good point man and also a clinical finisher. But we seriously need a DM if we are going to push for a major title push next season.
