Arsenal and Chelsea target Gonzalo Higuain to stay at Napoli


Striker Gonzalo Higuain will stay at Napoli next season, according to reports in Italy.

The 27-year-old missed a crucial penalty in Napoli's 4-2 home defeat against Lazio on Sunday and blamed himself for the loss.

According to Italian journalist Diego De Luca, the former Real Madrid striker burst into tears in the dressing room as Napoli failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

The Partenopei needed a win to finish the season in third place but instead they end their Serie A campaign in fifth place after Fiorentina leapfrogged them in the table after easing past Chievo at home.

Arsenal have made contact with Napoli for the striker according to Mirror but the Argentine is determined to stay to help Napoli fight for the title next season.

It is also unlikely that president Aurelio De Laurentiis will sell the striker considering the difficulties he would face in replacing him with all Europe's finest strikers not interested in joining a team who will not feature in next season's Champions League.
