Will Higuain leave Napoli?

Posted on | March 1, 2016 | No Comments

Gonzalo Higuain is one of the most in form strikers at the moment and at the same time one of the most wanted players.



Premier League betting odds explained that Arsenal, Chelsea or PSG are among the possible destinations for the 28 years old star.

Arsenal were interested in signing Higuain also in 2013 but the Argentine forward chose Napoli in the end.

Arsenal failed to score in nine games this season and it’s clear that they need to strengthen the attack. Olivier Giroud is the only natural striker as Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott or Joel Campbell are comfortable playing on the wings.

Even if Giroud is in good form, Arsenal still need at least one more star attacker if they want to be competitive on all the fronts. Also a partnership with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil could prove deadly for any Premier League side.

On the other hand PSG would need a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic who’s contract expires at the end of the season. Ibrahimovic will probably leave the French capital this summer. The Swedish star is still a first team regular but latest injuries may suggest that he is not the player that used to be.

The rumors from Serie A suggest that Higuain will not sign a new deal with Napoli. The striker was recently called out by Napoli president for being overweight and the Argentine has not taken lightly. On the other hand the player’s agent,  Nicolas Higuain, stated that the he will not leave this summer. The current contract expires in 2018.

Pipita joined Napoli from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 for €40 millions. Even if he won Coppa Italia in the first season Higuain had ups and downs during the first two seasons in Serie A. This season is definitely his best in Serie and not only. The Argentine forward is currently the Serie A top goalscorer, with 25 goals in 27 games.

Napoli are currently second in Serie A standing, 3 points behind Juventus. For the first time in the last couple of years Napoli have real chances of winning the Serie A title. Napoli have won the title only two times in 1986 -1987 and 1989-1990 seasons spurred on by their talismatic captain Diego Maradona.

Gonzalo Higuain declared himself delighted with how thins are going this season. He mentioned that one of the reasons for his good form is the relation with coach Maurizio Sarri.

Gonzalo Higuain started his career at River Plate youth team. He made the debut in the first team in 2005. In two seasons he scored 13 goals in 35 appearances before moving to Real Madrid.

Higuain scored 25 goals in 54 appearances for Argentina according to wikipedia.
