Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain's frustration with a surprising reduction in first-team action in recent weeks has put a number of Premier League clubs on red alert, all hoping that the Argentine superstar could be persuaded to make a stunning switch in 2015.

Higuain has been regularly been rotated by Napoli boss Rafael Benitez of late, with Colombian undetstudy Duvan Zapata finding form and trusted to lead the line in both Serie A and Europa League matches.

Benitez has been at pains to insist that he's just keeping both players fresh after a busy run of fixtures, but try telling that to Liverpool in particular.

Liverpool still desperately need a new forward to compensate for the loss of Luis Suarez to Barcelona and Daniel Sturridge through injury, with Mario Balotelli proving a spectacular flop in the early part of his Anfield career.

Higuain has a proven track record with both Napoli and Real Madrid that means he demands the attention of the Reds, while the Express believe that Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are also seriously interested.

What about a move to Manchester?

Given the striking issues at Manchester City at this present moment you have to believe they would be interested in Higuain, a player who has seven goals in 15 games this season despite spending some unwanted time on the bench.

City are without Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic right now through injury, putting their title challenge at serious risk. Higuain would be an expensive but quality addition that Aguero knows all too well, which if Financial Fair Play issues can be negotiated is a line of enquiry City should pursue.

Manchester United meanwhile are mulling over whether to sign Radamel Falcao permanently next summer. Given his poor recent injury record maybe that £40million-plus agreement with Monaco would be better spent on Higuain, which means it's well worth the Red Devils monitoring developments at Napoli over the next six months.
