Gonzalo Higuain wants to leave Napoli amidst Premier League interest

Published Add your comment

Gonzalo Higuain could be set for the Premier League as Manchester United and Arsenal are keeping tabs on the 27-year-old forward, reports claim.

With both Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie both set to leave Old Trafford this season there would be plenty of room for the former Real Madrid man to join his international colleagues Angle Di Maria and Marcos Rojo in Manchester.

Higuain rumours

The want-away striker is keen to leave Italy after seeing Napoli fail to qualify for the Champions League this season. Higuain has been an integral part of the team for Napoli, having scored over 20 goals in two successive seasons for the club.

As a result they are keen to keep him on and have a €100m buy-out clause to lean on if they really want to retain their striker's services. That being said a bid in the region of £40m should be enough to convince the Italian outfit to part company with their main-man.

Arsenal interest

Arsenal are reportedly keen on the striker and would not be put-off by the hefty price tag, having spent similar amounts on both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil in recent years.

With both Danny Welbeck and Oliver Giroud coming under fire for Arsenal this season Higuain could provide the perfect outlet for Arsenal to fight for the Premier League title next year.
