All Arsenal fans have been desperately waiting for the news that Gonzalo Higuain is definitely coming to Arsenal, well we have finally received a direct quote from his father that Arsenal have made a firm offer and are favourites for his signature, although it is still not certain to be accepted by Real Madrid.
Higuain Senior said: “Nothing has been signed yet, but I can assure you there are advanced talks between the clubs. We wouldn’t arrange any personal contract before the clubs agree for the transfer. I’m aware Arsenal has made a strong offer, as well as Juventus.”
So that is the good news, but reports of medicals and personal terms agreed are obviously just pie in the sky at the moment. But at least we know things are moving in the right direction.
As for Ashley Williams, it would seem that there is no truth whatsoever in Arsenal having approached the Welsh club. The Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins admitted: “While there seems to be constant speculation about Ashley Williams, I can honestly say that I haven’t had one call from anybody about him.”
I don’t think many Arsenal fans will be that bothered about missing out on the 28 year-old anyway to be honest. I prefer to think that the rumours about Kyriakos Papadopolous are more likely considering he is only 21. Well I certainly hope so!
