According to the Metro, says Arsenal have now shifted their attention in signing Argentine international Higuain.
Arsenal’s hope of signing a proven striker has been given a boost after Gonzalo Higuain rejected Napoli’s latest contract offer according to the metro.
Arsenal fans’ dream of signing Karim Benzema from Real Madrid has been dismissed as Benzema have moved to disregard every speculation that he is on his way to the Emirates.
Higuain is believed to be looking to leave the club after two years in Italy in which he’s scored 53 goals in 102 games.
The 27-year-old agent/brother has hinted Higuain was ready to leave Italy by confirming the star has refused to pen a new deal at the club.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” this summer, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
