Arsenal hope £19m bid is enough to lure Gonzalo Higuaín to Emirates

Gonzalo Higuain 1Arsenal have put signing a world-class striker at the heart of their summer transfer plans, with Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuaín emerging as an increasingly realistic target.

With £70 million to spend, Arsenal are preparing for their most adventurous transfer window under Arsène Wenger and are conscious of the need to move quickly within a market that will become intense following all the major managerial changes.

Wenger was interested in Higuaín before he even joined Real Madrid from River Plate in 2007 and there is a feeling that he could now be attainable for what would be a club-record transfer fee of £19 million.

Wenger confirmed on Friday that Arsenal were in talks for Yaya Sanogo but the Auxerre forward, 20, would be seen as a signing for the long term.
