Gonzalo Higuain will suit Arsenal, says Dixon


Former Arsenal full-back Lee Dixon believes Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain would be a huge success in England with the Gunners.

The Argentinian striker has made it clear that he doesn't want to stay in Spain with Madrid and has commented on his future by saying a move to Arsenal would suit him.

Over the last few weeks there have been several reports about the possible transfer, with some saying it's close, some saying it's not done and some even saying it's all agreed - but what we do know is that Arsenal are very interested in signing the 25-year-old, and a deal could be done sooner rather than later.

It is believed that the Gunners will pay £22m for Higuain, which would make him the highest paid transfer fee in the club's history, and it is believed he will be offered a contract worth around £130k-a-week, making him also the club's highest earner.

Club legend Lee Dixon believes if Arsenal can secure a deal to bring Higuain to the Emirates Stadium, it would be a great signing and believes the striker would be a huge success in England.

“If it comes off [Higuain signing for Arsenal], hopefully from an Arsenal point of view, he’s quality through and through,” Dixon told Sky Sports News.

“He will score goals there’s no doubt about that. He will get chances at Arsenal because they do create chances, they play his type of game so I think he’ll fit in really well.”

Higuain was on target 16 times last season for Real Madrid and has a very impressive goal-tally on the international stage also.

The Argentinian has featured in 30 games for his country and netted 23 times in those appearances.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes he is the perfect signing to replace Robin van Persie, who they lost last summer to Manchester United.
