Transfer balls: Arsenal buy Higuain for £9m less than Napoli bid for the Real Madrid striker

TRANSFER Balls: On July 6, the Sun said Arsenal had bought Gonzalo Higuian from Real Madrid for £23m . That wrong news still sits on the Sun’s website. Now read on to see what other experts in the media are saying on July 21…

The Metro: “Arsenal thwarted as Napoli agree £30m fee for Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain”

EuroSport says Higuain’s going to Napoli for £32m .

Daily Mirror: “Gonzalo Higuain stalls on completing Napoli move to give Arsenal chance to bid again”

He’s a fair-minded lad.

It is believed Higuain would still prefer moving to Arsenal but his potential switch to the Emirates went cold after Real Madrid suddenly “moved the goalposts” and increased the price from £24m to £32m.

But the Sun says a deal was struck at £23m? The Metro said Arsenal were “unwilling to stretch beyond a £22m price”.

This site says “The Gunners had agreed a £25m deal for Higuain”. 

The Express then states:

GONZALO HIGUAIN’S move to Arsenal could be back on as Napoli’s talks for the Argentine international are reported to have collapsed.

But despite Napoli boss Rafa Benitez’s admiration for Higuain, the Italian club are unwilling to pay the £35m price-tag.

The paper then adds:

Chelsea planning mega bid for Napoli and Arsenal target Gonzalo Higuain

No facts are supplied to back up the headline. And Mail has other news:

Arsenal back for Higuain after Napoli walk away from £35m asking price

Arsenal are ready to bid
