The Gunners are close to signing Higuain for £20million, while the club have also made a bid of £20million for Manchester United forward Rooney.
But the club, who finished 4th in the Premier League last season, are worried that they won’t be able to outbid any teams also interested in the strike duo. Despite being given a £70million transfer kitty, Wenger is unsure whether the club could win a bidding war for either forward.
Arsenal are the favourites to sign Higuain, but the deal has suddenly stalled, and both Juventus and Tottenham have shown an interest in the Real Madrid forward.
Meanwhile, Rooney has been linked with a move to PSG, Monaco and Chelsea, who all have rich financial backing. The Gunners, who finally turned their interest in the Englishman into a formal bid, fear that their competitors will outbid them to a point where the North London side have no response.
Rooney has started talks about his future with new manager David Moyes, who officially took over as Manchester United manager today.
The Red Devils aren’t keen on selling the forward to their Premier League rivals, but also don’t want to be stuck with an unhappy forward at the club.
Will Arsenal sign the duo? Or will they be outbid on both strikers?
