Arsenal strong favourites to land £43m Chelsea and Manchester United striker target


Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain wants to leave the club and Arsenal are strong favourites to sign, La Gazzetta dello Sport has reported on Monday morning.

The player has a buy-out clause of £67m but based on his current form no club is ready to make such a high offer.

Brother and agent Nicolas is therefore ready to negotiate with the Partenopei to find an alternative exit route for his brother who wants to feature in next season's Champions League.

Arsenal, according to the article, are ready to offer £43m with Serie A runner-ups Roma also showing interest.

The only problem is Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis, who insists that whoever wants to sign the Argentinean will have to pay the full £67m.
