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.
Premier League teams bidding to lure Argentine international, Gonzalo Higuain should have a re-think; as recent reports revealed that the player has a massive release clause that would surely put off intending suitors for the players signature.
According to London24, Napoli chief Aurelio De Laurentiis had admitted that he has put a £72 Million (€94 Million Euros) clause into Gonzalo Higuain’s contract. The Argentine has already scored 20 goals in 20 Serie A games just like he had done in the last two years for the Italian side and he is currently leading the goal scorer’s chart in the league at the moment. The Napoli chief said “I put the £72 Million into Higuain’s contract because I know how to evaluate players, Laurentiis said.”
Arsenal are still looking to bring in another striker to compete with Olivier Giroud and also to boost their chances of winning the Premier league this season for the first time since 2004. The Gunners have been linked with some of the hottest strikers around and most recently had a bid rejected for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
Chelsea are also looking to bring in another striker to compliment Diego Costa as Radamal Falcao who is on loan from Monaco has flopped once again and Loic Remy is not in form. With the Higuain release clause “sky rocketed” interested clubs would have to look elsewhere as he is already 28-year-old and shouldn’t command such huge fee.
