Better to pay over the odss than to be left empty handed no?
ARSENAL target Gonzalo Higuain has asked for 48 hours to think over a £30million move to Napoli.
The Real Madrid striker — who has already agreed personal terms with Arsenal — wants to see whether the Gunners will raise their offer before committing himself to a move to Italy.
But Arsenal are unwilling to be drawn into a bidding war after believing they had agreed a £23m deal with Madrid.
Especially as they know the Spanish giants are planning to use the Higuain money to outbid them for Liverpool hitman Luis Suarez.
Reports in Italy claim that Napoli boss Rafa Benitez’s £30m offer for Higuain has been accepted by Madrid.
And there are growing concerns within Arsenal that they will be left empty-handed despite their promises of at least one stellar signing.
But they are not prepared to pay over the odds for Argentina star Higuain, 25, who has made it clear that he will be leaving the Bernabeu despite the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti as boss
