24-Goal Star Denies Interest In Arsenal Or Liverpool Swap

Despite being consistently linked with a move away from Napoli this season, Gonzalo Higuain has denied any interest in making the switch away from the Serie A side.

This has put a doubt on any hopes Arsenal and Liverpool may have had of tempting the striker away from Italy, as reported by Talksport.

The Argentinian international moved to Napoli last summer for £32 million, despite significant interest from elsewhere in Europe, with both Arsenal and Liverpool linked with moves.

He made a huge impact in his first season, helping Napoli qualify for the Champions League by bagging 24 goals in the league.

The Serie A side have made a slow start to the new campaign, and boss Rafa Benitez is already under pressure from the club’s hierarchy.

Higuain did not feature during Napoli’s 3-3 draw with recently promoted Palermo, and there were suggestions that this was as a result of the speculation linking him with a move away.

The striker has, however, denied any interest in a switch, saying: “Am I happy to play for Napoli? It is a fantastic city to play football.

“I came here gladly and it is a marvellous city.”

Liverpool To Make Stunning Move For €40m Hit Man – reports

Liverpool are set to make a stunning move for the Argentinian international striker Gonzalo Higuain, as reported by the Daily Express.

The forward has had a sensational career, having spent several years at Real Madrid, the giants of Spain.

While at the Santiago Bernabeu club, he won La Liga three times.

They also won the Copa del Rey once and the Supercopa de Espana twice, although they never won a hugely coveted Champions League trophy.

Since moving to Napoli, who he joined last summer for €40 million, he has also helped the Italian side to the Coppa Italia last season.

However, it now seems he might find himself leaving the team.

Rumours suggest that the manager Rafa Benitez is set to be replaced by former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.

This could mean the end for Higuain, who is a favourite of Benitez.

The Anfield club could benefit from that particular decision, with a move for him on.
