Gonzalo Higuain has dealt Arsenal a blow by revealing that he is planning to stay at Napoli next season.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for the Argentina forward as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his attacking options at Emirates Stadium ahead of the new season.

I have a contract with Napoli that makes me very happy

Higuain has also been touted as a target for Barcelona after Lionel Messi said that he would love to see his international team-mate join him at Camp Nou.

However, the 26-year-old, who moved to Napoli from Real Madrid last summer, looks set to stay with the Serie A side.

“I am really grateful to Leo [Messi] for his kind words but I have a contract with Napoli that makes me very happy,” Higuain told www.tuttomercatoweb.com.

“The Partenopei club [Napoli] has always treated me very well since I arrived there.”

Higuain scored 17 goals and made seven assists in 32 Serie A games for Napoli last season.
