Arsenal lose race for Gonzalo Higuain as he arrives at Napoli for medical
Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has arrived at Rome’s Fiumicino airport as he makes his way to Napoli for a medical.
The Argentina international was thought to be Arsenal’s top target for the summer, but a widely expected deal never materialised.
Instead, the 25-year-old looks set to ply his trade in Serie A. He is in line for a reported €116,000-a-week pay packet.
If the gossip columns are to be believed, Higuain’s €37m transfer fee is probably the reason he hasn’t moved to the Emirates. The Gunners always appeared reluctant to match Real’s valuation, whereas Napolo were happy to do so.
