Arsenal fans thought that Gonzalo Higuain was going to sign in the summer of 2013, but that fell through when the Argentinian rejected a move to the Emirates and instead jetted off to Naples to play under Rafa Benitez for Napoli.
However, the 26-year-old is struggling to adapt to life in Italy and is keen on a move away from the Stadio San Paolo, according to the Daily Star.
He started his career at his national homeland for River Plate in 2005, which seems to be the core source of artful Argentinians. But, his fearsome form sparked the interest of Real Madrid and he transferred to the Spanish giants in 2007 for a fee of £12 million.
Ever since his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu, he has made a staggering 190 appearances, scoring an even more impressive 107 goals in those games.
But, his extraordinary six-year spell in Spain finally came to an end when Napoli stole the opportunity to buy Higuain off the unfortunate hands of Arsenal for a whopping price of £40 million.

However, Higuain has struggled to settle in despite the 21 goals that the Argentinian has scored in 41 appearances for the Naples based side and now Arsene Wenger is coming in for second helpings.
The Frenchman has been left dazed by the forward's £31.2 million price tag but Wenger may be forced to pay such a large sum of money if Danny Welbeck's inconsistent form persists.
The Italian press are currently reporting that Arsenal and Napoli are in the early stages of positive negotiations but an agreement is expected to be made in the January transfer window to bring the former Real Madrid goalscorer to the Emirates.
So could this finally spell the end of the Gonzalo Higuain and Arsenal transfer saga, or will another villainous club enter the incredible situation to throw another unwanted spanner in the works?
