Arsenal are still in talks over capturing Gonzalo Higuain from Real Madrid, with Juventus also chasing his signature, according to his father Jorge Higuain.
Speaking to La Repubblica, Higuain senior said his son has not yet signed for any club as they are still considering offers and are in negotiations to reach the best deal for the player and the respective clubs.
"Nothing has been signed yet but I can assure you there are advanced talks between the clubs," said Higuain senior.
"We wouldn't arrange any personal contract before the clubs agree for the transfer. I'm aware Arsenal has made a strong offer, as well as Juventus."
Arsenal are front-runners for the Argentine striker since it emerged that he could be tempted into a move away from the Spanish capital.
Arsene Wenger is believed to have been given the green light to bring established names into the club, with Manchester United's Wayne Rooney also linked to Arsenal.
Arsenal are ready to pay a club record fee in the region of £22 million for the Real Madrid striker, who is also coveted by the Serie A champions.
Juventus are rivalling the North London club in the race to sign 25-year-old Higuain, who scored 16 goals in 28 La Liga appearances last season.
