Arsenal must sign Gonzalo Higuain if they miss out on Karim Benzema

Published 1 Comments

As the new season is now underway, the one big question most people are asking is: is this finally Arsenal's season?

Well, it could be as the Gunners have further strengthened their squad, despite not being particularly busy as most of their rivals.

The signing of Petr Cech from champions Chelsea for £10 million seems to be a smart piece of business, which is surely the final piece in the Arsenal jigsaw.

However, many believe that Arsenal still need at least one more ambitious signing - they need a world-class striker.

The London club have been, and continue to be, linked with a move for France and Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema. Although, both Arsenal and Real say no approach has been made for the former Lyon man, Arsene Wenger is expected to keep track on Benzema, who could cost the Frenchman £45 million.

Gonzalo Higuain

If the FA Cup winners do miss out on the signing of the French international, they have some hope elsewhere, as the club are also monitoring Napoli talisman Gonzalo Higuain.

The former Real Madrid player has reportedly turned down a new contract offer from Napoli adding to the speculation that the Argentine could move to the Emirates.

However, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has said that Higuain will not be leaving the Italian outfit this summer.

But it could be said that the Argentina international may have growing restless in Naples as his current club failed to qualify for this season's UEFA Champions League or challenge Juventus for the Serie A last term.

A move to the Premier League with Arsenal may not disappoint as Arsene Wenger's men look to battle on all four fronts this term.

Higuain is rated at £67 million by Napoli and if Arsenal were to splash the cash they would not be disappointed as Higuain is consistent performer and goalscorer.

With 18 goals in Italy's top division, he could be the man to help to finally end Arsenal's eleven year wait for the Premier League title.
