Gonzalo Higuain has agreed terms with Arsenal ahead of the striker’s club record £22 million move to The Emirates, according to several reports.
Higuain has been told he is free to leave the Bernabeu after seven years at the La Liga club.
Arsenal and Juventus were linked with a move for the Argentine, with the Serie A side believed to be frontrunners for his signature. However, they abruptly dropped their interest in Higuain and are now, reportedly, focused on signing Carlos Tevez, leaving The Gunners free to snap up the Real ace.
Arsenal have been keeping tabs on Higuain since 2004 when he was at River Plate. But it was Real Madrid who signed him in 2006.
But it seems Arsene Wenger has finally landed his man for a bulky £22 million.
Hopefully these reports hold some truth. If so, we have done some good business here.
Hopefully there will be more on the way.
Higuain netted 16 goals in 28 La Liga appearances last season.
