Deal Close: Arsenal have agreed personal terms to sign record-breaking no.9


Arsenal have reached an agreement with the agent of Gonzalo Higuain to make the Argentinean their marquee signing this summer, transfer market expert Emanuele Giulianelli has revealed.

The 28-year-old has refused to sign a new contract with Napoli and could leave the club this month.

The Gunners are ready to offer £55million as well as striker Olivier Giroud to secure the services of the striker.

But the Partenopei will only listen to offers if the player's buy-out clause of £79million is met.

"Higuain's agent (his brother) has already agreed with Arsenal a wage of €9mln for 5 yrs. Bid to Napoli not officially done yet but expected," Giulianelli wrote on Twitter.

Higuain scored a record-breaking 36 goals in last season's Serie A and is considered by many as one of the most lethal strikers on the planet.
