The Argentine striker – who was linked with the Gunners last season when he left Real Madrid – has found his future the subject of speculation once again in recent weeks.
Liverpool are understood to be considering a £30m offer for his services, amid talk that Napoli are ready to offload their star striker.
Arsenal are also in the battle, with Arsene Wenger’s move for Danny Welbeck having seemingly not finished his quest to add goals to his team.
And now both clubs have been given major encouragement, with reports suggesting that Higuain is considering his options.
The 26-year-old is rumoured to have grown disillusioned with life in Italy, and could look to force a move away from Naples in the New Year.
Liverpool are thought to see the prolific goal-getter as a good addition, despite having signed Mario Balotelli from AC Milan over the summer.
As well as the Reds and Arsenal, Barcelona have been linked with Higuain.
