Gonzalo Higuain rejects China but may be on his way to England

London, England – Premier League club Arsenal are interested in signing Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli, according to Sky Sports.

Sky in Italy has reported that no offer has been forthcoming from the Gunners, but say “intermediaries” have been in contact with the Argentina striker’s brother who acts as his agent.

The former Real Madrid striker was the top scorer in Serie A last season with 36 goals.

There are several reports that indicate that a trade may be in place which would see Arsenal Olivier Giroud in Napoli and the Gunners costing a club record fee.

Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol reported Higuain had turned down a 947,000 euros a week to play for Hebei China Fortune this summer to move back to Madrid and play for Atletico Madrid or Arsenal.
