Gonzalo Higuain confirms interest in joining Arsenal from Real Madrid
Keen Gonzalo Higuain wouldn’t mind joining Arsenal
Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain has fueled speculation linking him with a summer move to Arsenal by saying that the Gunners would suit him perfectly.
Higuain has already announced his intention to leave Madrid in the coming weeks, and Arsenal have emerged as the front runners for his signature.
And despite interest from Tottenham and Liverpool, Higuain says a switch to the Emirates Stadium would fit nicely.
‘There have already been offers and I hope that Madrid do the best for me and themselves,’ said Higuain.
‘Arsenal? They would suit me, I’m still young and I have goals.
‘There are many possibilities. I want to go to a league where I’ll be put to the test.’
The 25-year-old is believed to favour a switch to the Premier League, and Arsenal are known to be on the lookout for a proven centre forward.
Wayne Rooney has been one name suggested, but despite Arsene Wenger’s admission that he likes the striker it is thought he will prove to be too expensive.
Stevan Jovetic remains a target, but it is likely that Higuain will be the easier to get with Madrid ready to sell for around £20million.
