HIGUAIN PREFERS LIVERPOOL
Napoli top rated talent Gonzalo Higuain says he favours the move to Liverpool than the host of other options at his disposal. The striker who is 28 years old is in great form at the Serie A helping the club to the second spot in the league after scoring a record 36 goals in 35 appearances.
The player says he favours a move to Anfield over any of the alternatives he has. His excellent goal scoring abilities is required by many top clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United.
The player has always been linked to English teams but the move has always been thwarted by one thing or the other. He has also being linked to the Bundesliga, with the spielautomaten website reporting news of a bid that have since been down-played by Carlo Ancelotti.
The Daily Mirror reports that the former Real Madrid forward says he is flattered by the interest by the manager of The Reds, Jurgen Klopp and would be willing to join the German on Merseyside despite the lack of European football next season. The loss of Liverpool to Sevilla ended the hopes of Liverpool playing in the UEFA Champions league next season and finishing eight in the Premier League means no action in Europe.
According to the Automatenherz tipsters, Christian Benteke is most likely to leave after enduring a torrid season despite his 32.5 million Pounds move last summer. Daniel Sturridge is also unclear about his next move. The Gunners were the favourites to sign Higuain, despite past moves not going through until Higuain’s comments.
Napoli have set their price at €30m for Manolo Gabbiadini as the player has resolved to leave the club. The 24-year old got little opportunity this season as Higuain was everywhere. According to Corriere dello Sport, the player has now made up his mind to leave, especially after being ruled out of the squad for Euro 2016. Clubs interested in acquiring the player include Wolfsburg, Hamburg, West Ham, Stoke City, Inter and Fiorentina.
