Arsenal Transfer Rumors: Arsene Wenger To Break Transfer Record For Higuain?

Arsenal Transfer Rumors – The fact that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has developed a liking for Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain is no news. Wenger wants to streghten his squad up front and has been rumored to be willing to make a splash for the Argentinian. And it could be a record splash.

The Guardian has the following:

Wenger wants fresh impetus up front and talks have already taken place with Higuaín’s representatives. Juventus also covet the Argentina international, who Florentino Pérez, the Madrid president, values at £25m. Arsenal’s record outlay is the £15m that they spent on Andrey Arshavin in 2009

While Higuain has said that he wants a change of scenery, he is still waiting for Real to appoint a new manager. He wants to be clear about what kind of a role the new boss would have in mind for him.

Higuain might be a nice addition and bring another dimension to Wenger’s offense, and according to many news outlets, the Frenchman is more than ready to pay the required amount for the 25-year-old.
