Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain could seen be plying his trade in the Premier League with Arsenal, according to the player's father.
A £22m deal has been in place for the last few weeks and it is now expected that the deal will be finalised sometime soon.
The Argentina international admitted at the end of last season that he wants to leave Madrid in order to face a new challenge, and it now looks like he might be joining Premier League side Arsenal, who appear to have beaten competition from Italian side Juventus for the striker's signature.
After announcing his intentions to leave the Spanish giants, Higuain then revealed in an interview that a move to the Emirates Stadium would suit him - and a move is looking more and more likely.
Higuain's agent, who is also his brother, has hinted that the deal is close to being done between the Spanish side and the English side with it being finalised sometime this week now that the transfer window is officially open.
The move was stalling because of Real Madrid not having a manager, but now they have appointed Carlo Ancelotti, according to the striker's father, Higuain has now been given permission to talk to the Gunners.
"We do not negotiate with any club without permission of the selling club," Jorge Higuain told TuttoMercato. "We have permission [from Madrid] and hopefully we can soon see my son in the Premier League."
