Gonzalo Higuain: Reported to have agreed terms with Arsenal

Gonzalo Higuain: Reported to have agreed terms with Arsenal

The Gunners have been considered favourites to do a deal ever since it emerged that the South American forward could be lured away from Santiago Bernabeu.

Juve have offered opposition in the transfer market, with the Serie A champions striving for continuous improvement.

They feel a new frontman would aid their cause, and believed a proven goalscorer in the form of Higuain would represent sound business.

If speculation is to be believed, then Arsenal have already agreed terms with the 25-year-old over a move to England.

Juve will not be giving up without a fight, though, and general director Giuseppe Marotta believes there could be a late twist in a long-running saga.

He told Sky Sport Italia: "Higuain? I do not want to say anything because there is still so much time left for things to happen."

With a striker considered to be Juve's top priority this summer, they have also been linked with moves for Fiorentina's Stevan Jovetic and Manchester City's Carlos Tevez.

Marotta is, however, keeping his transfer cards close to his chest.

He added: "There is no hurry. They are both great players but they are also with great clubs, so it would not be right to discuss them.

"I do not want to create an illusion that things are already in motion."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
