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.”
