Argentinean Striker Heading To North London?
Despite the transfer window being closed there is still plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Arsenal and Tottenham are linked with Gonzalo Higuain.
The Argentinean hitman is in his seventh season at the Bernabeu and has been a huge hit at the Spanish giants since making the move from River Plate in 2006, going on to score 100 goals in 179 La Liga games so far. However, he has fallen down Jose Mourinho’s pecking order in recent months with French striker Karim Benzema now preferred up front and it seems he could be set to leave this summer.
The Mirror claims Higuain has told Madrid officials he wants to join a Premier League club at the end of the season and the La Liga champions are understood to have allowed him to negotiate a move with Arsenal and Tottenham among the clubs interested.
The Gunners are in desperate need of more options up front with Olivier Giroud the only real out-and-out striker available at present, and the Mirror suggests that boss Arsene Wenger has already made contact with the 25-year-old’s representatives to register his interest.
Spurs may also be on the look-out for another front man with Emmanuel Adebayor struggling to find the net this season while Jermain Defoe has had his injury problems and the newspaper claims they may use their close relationship with Madrid to try and broker a deal, with the Spaniard’s understood to value Higuain at around £22m.
