The situation of Gonzalo Higuain is getting interesting with every passing day.
The Argentine international had made it clear that he wants to leave the club in the summer but little did he knew that mere wishes won’t take him to his preferred destinations as bidder clubs will have to meet the valuations asked by his parent club.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has warned that the 25-year-old striker won’t be available for cheap and would consider the deal only if the offer crosses over €30m (£25m).
Arsenal have shown great interest in signing him but the North London club have yet to lodge a formal bid for him. Italian giants Juventus are reportedly preparing to table a €22m (£18.7m) bid but that won’t be enough to tempt the Madrid officials.
Perez told Mediaset: “If Juventus are thinking about offering €30m for him then it would be better if they don’t even turn up because that will not be enough.
“But we have not yet received any offers for Gonzalo and that is including Juventus.”
Arsenal desperately need a striker who can score 20 goals a season and Higuain fits almost all the bill required by the Frenchman. Money is there to spend for Wenger, if the reports are believed to be true – the question is should he spend over £25m for Higuian?
