With the 2014/2015 season drawing to a close in a matter of weeks, managers and clubs have started making transfer plans ahead of the summer.
Reports making the rounds now per the Metro, are suggesting that Arsenal have reignited their interest in Gonzalo Higuain.
The former Real Madrid striker was once a target for Arsene Wenger in 2013 and was close to sealing a move to the Emirates Stadium before the deal reportedly broke down.
It was an incident that saw the Argentine International move to Napoli in July 2013 for €37 million.
The report also claims Wenger has been given the green light for talks to begin over the transfer of the 27-year-old. And Wenger is said to be excited over the big money deal reported to be in the region of £28.9 million to land Higuain.
Higuain has scored 22 goals and assisted a further 6 times in all competitions for Napoli so far this season and is also a target for a host of Europe’s elite clubs including Liverpool and Manchester United.
