The host of Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli claims that the Argentina international will ‘almost certainly’ join the Gunners this summer following their offer for the striker
Napoli’s official radio station has claimed that Arsenal have offered €50 million (£41.8m) plus Olivier Giroud for Gonzalo Higuain.
The Argentina international has been linked with a move away from the Serie A club this summer but clubs have been told they must meet the player’s €94 million (£78.6m) release clause to prise him away from Naples.
Juventus and Arsenal are two sides who are being heavily linked with Higuain, while earlier this week Giroud’s agent fuelled speculation by suggesting that the France international would be open to joining Napoli.
And now Radio Kiss Kiss’ host believes that Higuain will “almost certainly” be heading to Arsene Wenger’s side this summer.
“At the moment the rumour linking Higuain to Juve is true, but I am certain that in the end Pipita will leave Napoli to go abroad,” said Francesco Marciano.
“He will almost certainly join Arsenal. For now the Gunners are offering €50m plus Giroud.
“Arsenal are trying to free up funds by selling players so they can increase the economic part of the proposal.”
