Untitled-1We have been linked a number of strikers over recent weeks. Names such as Gonzalo Higuain, David Villa, Stevan Jovetic, Adrian Lopez and Wayne Rooney to name but a few.

However, the two names that seems to be in the spotlight more than others is Villa and Higuain.

Higuain has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal after the Argentine striker recently declared that he will be leaving Real Madrid this summer. Arsene Wenger has also, reportedly, spoken to the player and his agent about a potential move which could reach around the £20-25 million mark.

The 25-year-old managed to find the net 18 times and contribute eight assists in 30 appearances in all competitions this season and is seen by many of the Arsenal faithful as an ideal signing that could potentially fire the club to silverware next season, me included.

However, our link to Spanish forward Villa, which began in January, just doesn’t seem to be going away – whether this is a good thing, you guys can decide.

The 31-year-old has fallen out-of-favour at the Camp Nou, hence his link to us and the Spuds down the road, and it seems he is looking to move on for a fee of around £15 million.

Villa managed to start only 26 games of his 43 appearances for Barca this season, contributing 16 goals and six assists. Despite his age, he is what Wenger is apparently looking for – experience.

With Jovetic off vanishing of our radar, no development in the Rooney story and Adrian Lopez staying at Atletico Madrid, the only two realistic striking options that we have on our plate is Higuain and Villa.

So yesterday I posted up a tweet asking the following – ‘Who would you rather sign out of the two and why – David Villa or Gonzalo Higuain?’

I got a few responses from several Arsenal fans and the majority all preferred the latter of the two.

@MrRealisticAFC said: higuain. he is in his prime…and i just think he is better.

@goon3crazy replied: villa is 31….

@ArsenalNotifica said: I will go for Higuain, There’s still a lot of potentials in him,Young and can still improve.

@ERICTHEGOONER kept it short and sweet: Higuain any day any time.

So if it was to come down to either Higuain or Villa signing for us this summer, who would you like to see come in?
