Arsenal transfers: ‘Gonzalo Higuaín is perfectly suited to the Gunners’
Arsenal transfers: Ex-Manchester United forward Terry Gibson believes Gonzalo Higuaín is just the player the Gunners need
Terry Gibson believes Gonzalo Higuaín is just the player Arsenal need.
The Gunners are understood to have agreed personal terms with the Argentina international ahead of a £22m deal with Real Madrid to bring Higuaín to north London.
And former Tottenham and Manchester United forward Gibson believes that the 25-year-old would be a big hit in the Premier League – and is surprised Madrid are considering selling the forward.
“Arsenal are getting a very good player,” Gibson told talkSPORT. “I’m amazed Real Madrid are considering selling him.
“He’s 25 years old, so he’s only going to get better. He’s been a great player for Real Madrid. Sometimes clubs and supporters get bored with the same strikers. I don’t see any reason why Higuain would leave. If Arsenal could get him for under £20m then that’s a steal.
“He’s perfectly suited for the Premier League. He’s got a good physique, is a really tidy all-round footballer and a great finisher.
“He’ll settle in the Premier League well with his style of play. He’s not a Lionel Messi or a Cristiano Ronaldo, he’s more of a Radamel Falcao, just an out-and-out number nine.
“He’s what Arsenal need. They have a lot of players who can keep and move the ball but they need a focal point up front and he can provide that.”
