Arsenal's last two summers have been characterised more by the players that have left the club than those that have arrived, but this year could represent a change in tack for the north Londoners.

Two years ago Arsenal lost their captain Cesc Fabregas following a tedious transfer wrangle with Barcelona and, 12 months later, saw his successor as skipper Robin van Persie leave the club in even more sickening circumstances.

Yet things could be set to change in the transfer window of 2013, as the Gunners pursue players that had seemed beyond their financial reach in season's past, with Gonzalo Higuian likely to become the first high-profile acquisition since Arsenal's alteration in strategy.

Arsenal are reported to have already agreed personal terms with the Argentina international, and must now negotiate a fee with Real Madrid - with a club record £22 million set to be enough to complete a deal.

The 25-year-old may have slipped down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu, but he remains a player of undoubted quality, and is set to leave Real Madrid with a more goals tally of 122 strikes in 266 appearances.

Higuian possesses the ability to score an wide array of goals, and will provide Arsenal with the natural finished they have been lacking since the departure of Van Persie in the closing days of last year's summer window.
