The marathon race that is Gonzalo Higuain’s move from Real to Arsenal inched closer to the finishing line today with a quote from his brother who is also his agent.
Nicolas Higuain told Tutto Mercato Web: “Now that Tevez is signing for Juve, does that mean Higuain is closer to Arsenal? I think so.
“Juventus is a great club, but Gonzalo is too expensive for them. Napoli? They’re a strong team and a club that means a lot to Argentines.
“But having said that, I can’t deny that Gonzalo is now close to Arsenal.”
So is that a done deal now? Gunners fans are you starting to worry that all the energy that’s being invested into securing this deal has meant that others are slipping past?
