Because of Chile facing Argentina in the Copa America final last weekend, Arsenal will have to get the new season underway without the star man of last year Alexis Sanchez. And if the latest of the summer Arsenal transfer rumours are correct, then Arsene Wenger could be without two of the biggest names in the Arsenal squad.
Because a Metro report claims that the Frenchman has made the Napoli and Argentina front man Gonzalo Higuain his priority transfer target. The report also claims that the Gunners have already made his Serie A side an offer of over £40 million, although that and the news that it was rejected seems a little hard to believe.
We know from transfer windows that Wenger is a fan of the former Real Madrid star, but just how much of a fan we should soon find out. Is Higuain the answer for Arsenal?
