Napoli striker could very well be heading for England this summer after Napoli rejected an approach from fellow Serie A giants Roma for his signature, the Daily Express reports.
Following the departure of manager Rafa Benitez to Real Madrid at the end of last season, the Argentine international has stated his desire to also move on from the San Paolo in the current transfer window.
League 1 giants Paris Saint Germain are rumoured to be lining up a bid to bring him in as a replacement for the iconic Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as he nears a return to AC Milan, though Higuain is said to have his heart set on a move to the Premier League.
Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal are all said to be keen on snapping him up, but reports in Italy have claimed that Roma have made the first move to prize him away.
Roma chief Rudi Garcia approached Napoli with an undisclosed offer, but were told that they would have to cough up £42.5m plus talented young defender Alessio Romagnoli to have the opportunity to speak to him.
