Now that Edinson Cavani reportedly signed a contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain, to end speculation linking him to Arsenal, it could open the door for Higuain to move to Arsenal.
The Uruguayan was reportedly set to quit the French champions this summer after becoming frustrated at being forced to play out of his favored position, and had been forced to play out wide.
Will Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s depature, the striker extended his contract with French champions Paris Saint-Germain until 2020, according to Sky Italia.
This latest development could give Arsenal a chance of landing Gonzalo higuain, with PSG keeping Cavani and eyeing Alvaro Morata, they will no longer need their long term target Higuain.
With the signing of Granit Xhaka, Arsenal are just a couple of players away from having a squad that is capable of competing both domestically and in Europe next season.
Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain could be the right peg in the right hole. The Argentin striker came close to joining Arsenal in 2013, although Arsenal backed out due to Real Madrid’s £35million asking price and he joined Napoli instead.
Since then, Higuain has gone on to break several Serie A records and he scored lot of goals. A lethal finisher is exactly what Arsene Wenger’s side need, but they would surely have to pay more than £35m this time around, as he is better than any Arsenal striker.
