Arsenal and Atletico Madrid to support Lazio so as to land £28m striker


Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain will stay in Italy if the Partenopei beat Lazio and qualify for next season's Champions League.

Napoli need to win tomorrow's home game against Lazio if they are to finish third in the Serie A and qualify for the Champions League play-offs.

If they fail to beat Stefano Pioli's side, the 27-year-old will surely leave the club to enjoy Champions League football and a number of top European clubs would make their move.

Arsenal, Atletico Madrid and Manchester United are all ready to offer the £28m needed to secure the services of the striker who scored 51 goals in 103 games for Napoli.

According to reports from Italy, the player would be delighted to return to the Spanish Liga but Atletico boss Diego Pablo Simeone opted not to comment about a possible move.

"I only talk about the transfer market with [Jose Luis] Caminero, [Andrea] Berta and Gil Marin," Simeone said last week.

"And we never spoke about [a possible move] for [Gonzalo] Higuain."
