Arsenal have been given a huge boost in their attempts to sign Gonzalo Higuain after the Real Madrid striker confirmed he’d be keen on a move to the Emirates Stadium this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The report claims the Argentinean hitman is attracting strong interest from the Premier League after confirming he’ll leave the Bernabeu this summer with Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool all understood to be keen on luring him to England.

However, it’s a move to the Gunners that’s caught the  25-year-old’s eye after he told reporters that Arsenal would suit him and he wants to move to a league where he can test himself.

‘There have already been offers and I hope that Madrid do the best for me and themselves.

‘Arsenal? They would suit me, I’m still young and I have goals.

‘There are many possibilities. I want to go to a league where I’ll be put to the test.’ Higuain is quoted as saying by the Mail

The Mail suggest that Arsene Wenger is on the look-out for a top striker this summer and Higuain is on a short-list that also includes Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic and Swansea City hitman Michu.

However, it seems Higuain may be the most likely target with the newspaper claiming Madrid are willing sellers and will accept around £20m for the striker as the Spanish giants look to re-shape their squad ahead of next season.

Prolific goal-scorers aren’t easy to come by and there’s no doubt Higuain would be an excellent signing for either Arsenal, Tottenham or Liverpool if one of them manages to pull it off. Despite not always being a regular starter, he’s still managed to score 122 goals and provide 46 assists in 266 games for Madrid since joining from River Plate in 2006, so a player of that caliber would strengthen any squad.

But it seems that the hitman would favour a move to Arsenal if he was to come to England and that may be down to the fact the Gunners can offer Champions League football. The north Londoners definitely need another forward on the books for next season and Higuain would give them an added goal threat up front.
