Arsenal could be gazumped by Chelsea for Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain
Arsenal may have been chasing the signature of Gonzalo Higuain for most of the summer, but reports in Spain suggest that the club may face significant interest from Premier League rivals Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho has been knocked back in his approach for Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney, and may therefore change his tact with a bid for the Argentinean, who he managed at Real Madrid during the last few seasons.
Spanish newspaper AS claim that Higuain himself has revealed to his friends and team mates that Jose would like to take him to Chelsea, and the striker may feel that the West London club is a better option for him than Arsenal.
Would certainly be a kick in the teeth for Arsenal fans, who had been certain that they had got their man.
