That Arsenal needs to sign another striker this summer is something virtually all football fans and pundits the world over agree to. And Wenger seem to have finally realised this hence the Gunners have been linked with signing of various strikers ever since the 2015/2016 season ended.
The chase for the signature of Jamie Vardy of Leicester City is well documented. And ever since the Englishman rejected Arsenal, choosing to stay at Leicester City by signing another contract, Arsenal have been linked with the signing of at least one striker per week.
This week news emerged that Arsenal are interested in signing one of their long term targets Gonzalo Higuain. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was in 2013 linked with the signing of the Argentine but for whatever reason, the deal the did not materialise. Newer reports claim Higuain is now the main target for Arsenal. Although the South American has been linked with Chelsea as well, the Blues have since signed Michy Batshuayi which has seen the rumours linking them to the signing of the player dying down.
And if Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli is to be believed, the deal is looking like it will happen. According to the Italian, Arsenal have agreed personal terms with the former Real Madrid striker. This, Arsenal are said to have done through the player’s brother who is also his agent.
The terms of the agreement according to Emanuele Giulianelli will see Higuain earn as much as €9 million annually. Giulianelli reckons Higuain will sign a 5 years contract with Arsenal which will see him earn €45 million (£37.5 million) in the course of his 5 years contract. According to Giulianelli Arsenal will pay €70m plus various add ons to Napoli for the services of the Argentine.
