Just when it seemed that it was done deal and that Arsenal fans would be getting the marquee striker signing they crave comes the news that Juventus haven’t given up hope of signing Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain.
In spite of rumours that the player has signed a £130,000-a-week contract to join the north London club and that Arsenal and Real were finalising the fee, Juve’s general director has said that he thinks the striker could still be bound for Italy.
Giuseppe Marotta told Italian television station Sky Sport Italia, which has been reported by The Star.
“Higuain? I do not want to say anything because there is still so much time left for things to happen.”
If the rumours are to be believed then time is the last thing that Morotta and Juve have.
So Arsenal fans is this going to be yet another player that slips through Arsene Wenger’s grasp?
