Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur striker target Gonzalo Higuain will cost £50million, according to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

Both the Gunners and Spurs are among the clubs to have been linked with a move for the Argentine forward, with Italian giants Juventus also thought to be keen on the 25-year-old.

However, the 32-cap international will cost substantially more than the £20miliion Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was reportedly ready to offer for the player.

“With £25.5m it’s better that they don’t come,” said Perez, according to The Sun.

“Let’s see if people ask us for £50m for everyone and we sell one of ours for half that.”

Higuain began his career with River Plate before moving to Real Madrid and making his debut in January 2007.

After six years at the Santiago Bernabeu, his time could be up however, with Arsenal looking to strengthen their attacking line for next season.

The Gunners were short of attacking options last term, with Olivier Giroud the only central striker available at the Emirates Stadium.

And, whilst Juventus had moved to the front of the queue to land the player, The Sun claims Arsenal are back in the race after meeting the player’s father in France.

Tottenham Hotspur, meanwhile, have been linked with a move for Higuain for several months, and were also short of options up-front last season.

Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor led the line at White Hart Lane, but injury and a lack of form hampered the duo’s efforts respectively at Spurs.

Higuain would add a serious goal-threat to Andre Villas-Boas’ side as they look to push for a top four finish in the Premier League, but the price-tag may push them out of the running.
