Arsenal struggle to find breakthough in Higuain negotiations

Arsenal are thought to be struggling to find a breakthrough in their negotiations for Gonzalo Higuain, reports

The Argentinian is understood to be keen to secure a transfer to the Emirates, but the Gunners are reluctant to pay more than £21m for the striker – with Real still holding out for £25.5m.

Despite his desire to bring Higuain to north London, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is now growing frustrated with negotiations to the point of eyeing up alternatives.

The club have already agreed personal terms with the 25-year-old, with the terms thought to be starting at around £100k-per-week – a deal which means Higuain would receive a large pay rise should the transfer go ahead, as he presently earns around £64k-per-week at the Bernabeu.

He is thought to have his heart set on a move to the Gunners, but has to remain patient while the two Champions League clubs thrash out the terms of the transfer.

Wenger also retains his interest in Man United striker Wayne Rooney, but this would mean a larger outlay than the Higuain deal, which in itself would smash the club’s record transfer in which they paid £13m for Sylvain Wiltord.
