Gonzalo Higuain scored the 200th goal of his career during Napoli's 1-0 victory against Udinese last weekend, following what has been a strong season far.

The Argentina international has been in top form, scoring nine goals in 12 games in Serie A and topping the goalscoring charts.

Such are his emphatic performances on the pitch that the Argentine has attracted interest from Premier League giants Arsenal and Liverpool, who have consistently expressed interest in signing him.

However, according to his brother, Nicolas Higuain, as per talkSPORT, the striker has no intentions of leaving the Italian club.

He told Radio Crc: "Three years ago Gonzalo chose Napoli and you can see how much this club means to him by what he is doing on the pitch.

"His dream, since the first day he set foot in Naples, is to win the Scudetto with Napoli."

His greatest wish, though, is to emulate Diego Armando Maradona's feat for the club.

"[Fellow Argentinian] Diego [Maradona] won the Scudetto with Napoli in his third year at the club and we hope this will be a good sign," added Nicolas.

Napoli currently sit fourth in the Serie A table, just two points behind leaders Fiorentina and Internazionale after 12 matches. The club will need everything from Higuain to make a genuine push for the title amongst a strong pool of rivals in a tight race for Scudetto glory.


Both clubs are in desperate search for a lethal striker like Higuain, but for different reasons. 

The Reds have struggled to find their rhythm throughout the start of the season and have often failed to capitalise on the opportunities given to them.

Christian Benteke has been far from the clinical striker Liverpool thought they'd purchased over the summer, leaving Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho to often bear the goalscoring burden.

Arsenal, on the other hand, need to increase depth in their squad after a crippling month that saw forwards Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Aaron Ramsey suffer injuries.

Olivier Giroud has certainly played well amidst the side's injury crisis, though the acquisition of Higuain would certainly add more firepower to the Gunners' already solid attack.
