His dad is onside and the player has apparently agreed a £100,000-a-week contract but the sticking point in the Gonzalo Higuain transfer from Real to Arsenal was always the fee.
Now Goal is suggesting that that the two parties are near to agreeing on that one too.
The website says that Arsenal have made an improved offer of £23.1 million for Gonzalo Higuain.
‘The Gunners are confident their new bid will be enough to secure the Real Madrid striker, with sources saying the fee could be agreed by the two clubs ‘within the next 24 hours’.
That fee is still less than Real’s £25.5m valuation of the player, but hopefully for Gooners should be enough for their team to land the elusive striker.
And speaking of elusive strikers a couple of sites are hinting that the deal to sign Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic could be back on.
It seems that Juventus have given up on the player leaving the field clear for Arsenal, and possibly Man City. However there is still clearly a large hurdle in the player’s wage demands. It’ll be interesting to see how this one pans out. I wonder if City have other targets, and as for Arsenal Jovetic is probably now behind Wayne Rooney in the Arsene dream team pecking order.
