There have been whispers for a few weeks now that Arsenal are about to launch a bid for Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain. Now even the broadsheet papers are getting in on the story with the Telegraph claiming that the player has emerged as the Gunners’ number one target and that a bid of £19 million has been lined up.
According to the paper Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is going to move swiftly so he has a settled team ready for the Champions League qualification games in August.
Higuain would be a real quality addition to the the Arsenal squad and he has a very good record scoring 120 goals and providing 45 assists in 264 games for Madrid.
However the paper also says that Wenger is mulling over three other targets; Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic, Wayne Rooney and another Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
Looking at that list I think Higuain seems the most likely, but maybe Jovetic will be coming too.
So which one would you prefer?
