Arsenal and Man United boosted in chase for 29-goal Argentina international

Arsenal and Manchester United have been given a slight boost in their chase to sign Gonzalo Higuain after remarks made by Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, Daily Star reports.

The 27-year-old has emerged as a potential striking candidate for both the Gunners as well as United over the past few months.

He is now being tipped to leave the Serie A outfits after missing out on a Champions League spot with a fifth place finish.

De Laurentiis revealed that his squad may need to undergo an overhaul and acquire some home-grown talent as many top players are unlikely to play in the Europa League.

“We must begin again from an all-Italian Napoli,” he said.

“I put that idea into my head after a few feelers were sent out, confirming several overseas players wouldn’t accept the Europa League.

“It meant we had to start again from a healthier provincial approach.

“We believe in our young players and know they can grow.”

Although Higuain enjoyed a great season in front of goal, he is among the names linked with a move to a team that can offer him a place in Europe’s top flight competition.

The Premier League pair are currently in the market for another striker and are also both linked with Real Madrid star Karim Benzema as well as Atletico Madrid forward Mario Mandzukic.
