Many sources earlier reported that the Argentine striker Higuain is a top transfer target for Arsenel in summer. But their pursuit took a blow when Juventus entered the transfer race and are ready to spend up to £19 million for the Real Madrid star.
It is also rumored that player already agreed terms with Italy champions and advanced talks are on going on between the two clubs.
Higuain’s brother and agent, Nicholas contradicted the rumors and said his brother could still move to an another club (Arsenal),
“There is nothing done yet with Juve. Player rights are Real Madrid and the first thing we need to do is to meet with the club,”
“What is missing, then? First, the above meeting to certify what seems an open secret, but official: that Madrid want to let the player if there is a good deal. Unless Carlo Ancelotti come and tell you otherwise, it doesn’t appear.”
Arsenal are also interested in signing Yaya Sanogo and Stevan Jovetic, as Wenger is set to strengthen his squad by all possible means
