As speculations continue to circulate over the possible transfer of Argentine forward Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli to Arsenal, latest reports suggest that the former Real Madrid marksman could be the one pressing for the deal to sail through.
The Gunners are believed to have made an opening offer of £43.3million in a bid to land the striker; but it is uncertain if Napoli will be willing to let go of the deadly striker for that price.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Arsenal’s reported bid however, popular Italian media outlet Corriere Dello Sport suggests Higuain wants to join Arsenal and is pushing for the transfer to happen this summer.
Higuain is said to have urged his brother, who is also his agent, to ensure he secures a move to north London.
Manager Arsene Wenger has not hidden his interest in the striker and came close to signing him from Real Madrid in 2013.
