Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain made history in Italy after scoring his 36th goal of the season on Sunday and he is expected to yet again be one of the most wanted players during the summer transfer window.
According to Calciomercato.it, Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli has offered a new contract to the 28-year-old with a reduced buy-out clause.
But it seems English giants Chelsea are ready to meet his current clause of £74million and make him Antonio Conte's first major signing of the summer.
Arsenal are expected to reignite their interest in the striker who was very close to joining the Gunners during last summer's transfer window.
France's Olivier Giroud was again disappointing this season and it is clear boss Arsene Wenger desperately needs a world-class striker if Arsenal are to be title contenders next season.
