Arsenal transfer target agrees four-year contract in £110,000-a-week deal


Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain is set to sign a new four-year contract with his club according to Il Corriere dello Sport.

The Argentinian is a target for a number of top European clubs including Arsenal and Chelsea according to reports in Italy.

But Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is determined to keep the 28-year-old and will offer him a new contract that will see the striker earn £5.3million a season.

Last week, De Laurentiis rubbished rumours linking the former Real Madrid man with a move away from Italy.

"How nice to see him scoring and celebrating as if he's wearing the Napoli shirt," De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli when asked about Higuain's goals for Argentina in the Copa America.

"He's a champion, because he plays for the pleasure of scoring goals, a real striker who should be respected. If his words are sincere, he'll play for Napoli for at least the next five years.

"I'm ready to extend his contract, I'm so fond of him as a man and as a player.

"I want Pipita to stay at Napoli forever."
