Arsenal Makes Strong Bid For Higuaín

The gunners are ready to offer 30M€ in a single payment, according to Marca journalist and Higuaín's biographer Ulises Sánchez-Flor. Arsenal is reportedly interested in adding a striker to the squad after a complicated first season without Robin Van Persie. As always, Real Madrid is waiting for Carlo Ancelotti to sign before making any decisions.

Higuaín won't go anywhere before Carlo Ancelotti signs his contract, something that should and could happen this next week. After that, the Italian coach should decide Pipita's replacement. If Real Madrid gets 30M€ for Gonzalo Higuaín, Florentino Pérez should be willing to spend a whole lot of money in his replacement.

According to Ulises Sánchez-Flor, author of the book "Gonzalo Higuaín, el indestructible" and also Marca journalist covering Real Madrid, Arsenal FC will try to land the Argentinian player with a 30M€ offer to Real Madrid. Juventus' offer would give Real Madrid 22M€ in five different payments, and that's not very appealing.

Remember Gonzalo Higuaín said he wanted a way out of the club after the last game against Osasuna. He should be a good addition to Arsenal and his only competition would be Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud. Real Madrid is now waiting for PSG to finally release Carlo Ancelotti in order to introduce the Italian coach and make the first moves in the transfer market.
