Is Gonzalo Higuain set for Arsenal?

Arsene Wenger looks set to seal his first transfer of the 2013 summer window, with a reported £19 million deal in place for Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain.

Reports coming out of Spain indicate that both personal terms with the forward and a transfer fee with the Spanish side have already been sorted.

Goal scorer

Having scored 14 times in 26 La Liga appearances this season, Higuain currently sits in second-place behind Cristano Ronaldo in the clubs goal charts.

In total, Higuain has created 21 chances for Real Madrid this season and has a shot accuracy of 66%.

Since moving to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2007, the Argentine has played 188 matches, netting a remarkable 105 times.

Such an impressive strike rate will have attracted the attention of Wenger. This transfer would definitely signal the clubs intent to challenge for silverware in the 2013/14 campaign.

 

Champions League Qualification

However, this deal is reliant on the Gunners qualifying for the Champions League by the time the season comes to an end.

They are currently in a good position to do this, with one game remaining, they sit in 4th place with a one point advantage over rivals Tottenham.

Is he needed?

Arsene Wenger already has Olivier Giroud, who has scored 11 league goals this season, as his first-choice centre-forward this season while Theo Walcott, Gervinho and LukasPodolski have all played up front too.

Signing a player of the calibre of Higuain, though, would be a massive boost for the Gunners, especially with him being at a top-class club and chased by a number of other teams.

Do you think Higuain would be a good signing for Arsenal? Have your say in the comment section below.
