Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has set his sights on a move away form the Bernabeu at the end of the season - and Juventus are leading the race to land the prolific striker.
According to Goal.com, Juventus are in pole position to sign the Argentina international in the summer transfer window after agreeing a four-year deal worth €4.5 million per season plus bonuses with Real Madrid.
Juventus had previously been linked to ex-player Zlatan Ibrahimovic but seemed to have failed in their bid to land the Swedish striker, and are now keen to add Higuain to their title-winning squad.
The 25-year-old Madrid striker is reportedly keen to seal a move away from Los Blancos following a disappointing campaign this season, while the club's general manager Jose Angel Sanchez has confirmed that Higuain might be sold at the end of the season.
Juventus are hoping that a bid of around €25 million will be adequate to lure Higuain away from Madrid and have already been in constant contact with the striker’s representatives, with a view to discussing personal terms before submitting an official bid in the summer.
It has also been revealed that Gonzalo Higuain has set his sights of an annual salary around the €4.5 million region - and Juventus are happy to meet his demands.
Higuain would also be open to a move to the Premier League, but none of the big teams have shown any real interest in the Argentine so far.
The striker is contracted to Real Madrid until the summer of 2016, while he has managed 119 goals in 262 appearances for Los Blancos.
