Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has admitted that a move to Arsenal would suit him as he looks to the future after announcing his intentions to leave Real Madrid in the summer.

After spending seven years with the Spanish side, Higuain announced after the final game of the season that he is ready to move on and experience a new challenge after not being a regular starter at the Bernabeu.

It is reported that Arsenal are very keen on trying to lure Higuain to the Emirates Stadium as manager Arsene Wenger is keen on strengthening his attacking options with the Argentinian striker on his wish list.

It is believed that Madrid would want around £20 million for the striker and Arsenal are prepared to spend that for the 25-year-old but they will face severe competition for Italian champions Juventus, who are also interested in the Madrid star.

Higuain has recently spoken more about his future and he has admitted that a move to Arsenal would suit and interest him as he is ready to put his skills to the test in one of the biggest leagues in world football.

He told reporters: “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.”

Arsenal are also keen on Fiorentina striker Stevan Jovetic but Wenger has apparently baulked at the €30 million asking price.
