Higuain On Barca’s Radar?

Argentina forward, Gonzalo Higuain, has been massively linked with a move to FC Barcelona.

Marca reports that new Barcelona coach, Luis Enrique, has earmarked Higuain as his new main striker and the 26-year-old is keen to join the Blaugrana.

However, Higuain’s club, Napoli, who bought the striker for €40m (R 583 million) last summer, are reported to be asking for at least €55m (R 802 million) for the striker.

The Italians are under the guidance of Rafa Benitez and want to build a strong team capable of challenging for the Seria A title as well as Europe.

While Barcelona are unlikely to spend so much money on Higuain, they could be prepared to include other players into the deal.

Higuain has scored 24 goals for Napoli in his first season and came on as a substitute in Argentina’s 2-1 World Cup victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina, assisting Messi’s goal in the second half.

Some reports are claiming that Higuain has already agreed personal terms with the Catalan giants and sporting director, Andoni Zubizarreta, is working hard to make the deal happen.
