Arsenal miss out! Gonzalo Higuain is pictured in Rome’s airport, going for Napoli medical
Arsenal have missed out on Gonzalo Higuain.
Pictures began circulating on social media on Wednesday afternoon of images of Argentine international striker in Fiumicino airport in Rome on his way to Napoli for his medical.
As was reported on Tuesday, Napoli have agreed a €37m deal with Real Madrid for Higuain.
Rumours are suggesting that Higuain will receive €116,000-a-week in wages, while the total bill which Napoli will foot for Higuain could total around €90m including wages, taxes and the transfer fee.
Napoli have moved quickly to re-invest the windfall from Edinson Cavani’s €63m move to PSG, and buying Higuain should certainly placate the fans in the San Paolo.
As for Arsenal supporters, they will be far from happy.
After being touted to sign Higuain for most of the summer, the goalscorer has snubbed a move to the Emirates. The Gunners quest to find a top-draw centre-forward remains problematic.
It’s been a busy day for Napoli with Liverpool goalie Pepe Reina also arriving in town before his medical to join Rafa Benitez’s team.
