Gonzalo Higuain has been linked with roughly 100 clubs this summer (give or take), including Arsenal and Liverpool, and now apparently Atletico Madrid are set to put in an offer for the Napoli goal machine.
According to Spanish outlet, Marca, Atletico manager, Diego Simeone, is willing to give €60m – €34m under the price that the La Liga club is asking for. However, he’s also willing to chuck in a player, such as Luciano Vietto or Oliver Torres, as part of the deal.
Since Higuain’s brother, Nico, confirmed that the striker would be leaving the Serie A team, Napoli would do well to get their money as soon as possible so they can at least try and replace one of the hottest strikers in the world right now.
From an Arsenal point of view, at the moment, it feels as if we’re drifting further and further away from signing a world class striker of Higuain’s calibre, unless Arsene Wenger has got something unexpected up his sleeve.
I’m not saying necessarily saying Higuain is definitely the answer to all our problems but I do think we need something big to restore the faith after the Jamie Vardy debacle.
