Arsenal and Tottenham are leading the chase to sign Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain – who wants to move to the Premier League this summer, according to the Mirror.

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.

    He speaks French just like AW. Still only 25 yrs, hard to believe, cos hes been at Madrid for ages it seems. And I don’t think his wages would break the wage barrier for us. No brainer right?.. ha ha ha.. then you do not know Arsene. look out for unknown players like Zuingtva Burvuni or Vesper Woofer. I know he’s under pressure but Having used good money to buy Seymour Butts and Squidlachi why do think Higuain comes to Arsenal… on right of this page I see a caption “Gunners new favs to sign Loic Remy” … I guess you understand me now!!!

    Great news just as long manu manc che dont want him and im sure manu may as i suspect after those screaming crosses he put in during the cl, and hes not even a winger, had the old mans heart stopped a few beats

    Would absolutely love to get him as he were always my favoured choice. I think we should still go for villa as i think we need two more strikers coz our current are shit

    Poldi on the wing is always going to be under twente pl goals
    Walcott is always going to be under twente pl goals
    Giroud is always going to be under twente league goals

    Villa and Higuain will add real know how, strike fear into opponents, whilst striking the back of the net on a weekly basis.

    Even Messi, Cr7, Vidic, falcao and varane will neva change arsenal unless Dictator wenger is sacked, i no many fans will talk about wot wenger did for arsenal, my answer to them is wenger did great things 4 in the past, i appreciate it, but now he isn’t the wenger he used to be, he can’t even learn fro defeats the club suffers through counter-attacks in every season, let him resign or get sacked cos he isn’t god. Young sophisticated manager with bag full tactics, that type of coach can win trophies with our current team.

      You really fail to see the bigger picture, Wenger is hurting right now, more then us he has suffered from the stadium move. With out him it would never of been possible. Look at Glasgow R, going bust and they have not even brought a new stadium. In the last 5-6 years is has sold his best players, players he has taught and made great players just to see his hard work sold. All this was done so we could have the 2nd biggest stadium so we can compete with man u in the future we are not they yet we are still in debt, but no manager could have done this for AFC but him. He get slated lately he takes al the blame. Some of our fans just cant see the BIG picture they just say buy Falco for 50 million and dont sell anyone.
      I feel sorry for him, he has been so loyal and is a great manager he deserves a chance once the debts are paid to splash out and compete
      In years to come he will be compared to the great Herbert Chapman, who for those they dont know was the man that did what Wenger is doing which was help with the move to Highbury

        While he is the manager , just back him and get behind the team trust me thats the best thing you can do if you cant understand the reasons and the BIGGER picture. Because the bosrd do its a long term plan that we are 1 or 2 seasons away from completing and Wenger was the dream person to do this, all other managers want to spend massive.
