Confirmed: Chelsea and Arsenal £64.7m target is for sale


Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis says he is ready to sell striker Gonzalo Higuain but only if his buy-out clause is met.

The Argentina international has attracted the interested of a number of top European clubs, including Arsenal and Chelsea in the Premier League.

And De Laurentiis will be forced to sell if the player's £64.7m buy-out clause is met in the summer.

"Sell Higuain for €90 million [£64.7m]? I'd like to sell him," he said.

"That way I can buy eight players for the club."

This would not be the first time that the Napoli president decided to sell one of his most important players to fund the arrival of new players in the summer.

In the summer of 2013, striker Edinson Cavani was sold to Paris Saint-Germain for £55m with the transfer used to fund the signings of Gonzalo Higuain, Pepe Reina, Raul Albiol, Dries Mertens and Jose Callejon.
