Arsenal Considering Further Bid For €40M Ace In January – reports

Arsenal are said to be considering a further bid for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain in January, as reported by the Daily Star.

The Argentinian international has reportedly grown frustrated at the lack of success won by Napoli since his move there last summer.

They finished third in Serie A last season, but failed to win their qualifier, missing out on entry to the group stage as a result.

Therefore, Higuain is said to be willing to consider a January move to another club.

Reports in Spain also suggest that Arsenal could be the side to go back in for him again in the winter transfer window.

Despite their huge summer outlay, which saw the Gunners spend big on the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Danny Welbeck and Calum Chambers, the Emirates Stadium club have won only two of their eight Premier League games.

Arsene Wenger is still reportedly keen on improving his strike force in January, and therefore going back in for Higuain looks like a reasonable idea.

Napoli paid €40 million to sign him in 2013, a fee Arsenal would likely have to match if they wished to sign him.
