Arsenal have been linked with a move to sign Higuain in the past but a transfer to The Emirates did not materialise.

Now, Italian journalist Giulianelli has claimed that the north London side have reignited their interest in the player and have made contact with the striker’s brother and agent Nicolas.

He tweeted:

The north London club are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Arsene Wenger bids to revamp his squad ahead of next season.

The Gunners have thus far only signed midfielder Granit Xhaka this summer but continue to be linked with a host of other players.

Wenger has already signalled his intention to bolster his attacking options at The Emirates with Arsenal’s failed bid to bring Jamie Vardy to the club earlier in the transfer window.

The north London side ended up without a trophy last season as they finished in second place in the Premier League.
