Gonzalo Higuain due in London to complete Arsenal deal

Published 25 Comments

Arsenal are on the verge of signing Gonzalo Higuain after Real Madrid gave the Argentinian striker permission to fly to London and complete the deal.

Arsenal been in a battle to land the striker with Juventus, but following the Italian's decision to set their sights on Carlos Tevez, the deal looked to belong to the Gunners.

A hold up appeared to put the deal in doubt - however now the Guardian report that Higuain will fly to London later today to put the finishing touches on his move to north London.

The transfer looked to be moving closer last night after Higuain's father Jorge confirmed that progress was being made.

"We managed to get permission from Real Madrid to negotiate face to face with Arsenal," he told Fox Sports Latin America. "Fortunately, I will soon be able to watch my son play in the Premier League."

Arsenal are believed to have offered Higuain the chance to become the club's highest earner with a £100,000-per-week three-year contract.

The fee is believed to be in the region of £25-30 million, although that is to be confirmed.

According to the Guardian, Arsenal's spending could continue after the finalise the deal for Higain. The paper claim the Gunners remain keen on luring Wayne Rooney to the Emirates Stadium.
