Transfer News Today: Higuain could boost Arsenal firepower

Forum chatter

Should Luis Suarez jump ship to Real Madrid, Liverpool could turn to another man who lit up the Premier League last season. Christian Benteke is the man being linked to Anfield today, with Aston Villa looking increasingly doomed to losing their star man.

Tabloid speculation I

David Luiz's days at Chelsea could be numbered if Jose Mourinho makes his expected return to Stamford Bridge. The Special One is reportedly ready to flog Luiz to Barcelona for around £30million in order to fund spending elsewhere. Sounds like a classic case of "This town ain't big enough for the both of us", if you ask us.

Tabloid speculation II

The rebuilding process at Manchester City could start with the signing of Sevilla's Jesus Navas. The Spanish international winger has reportedly overcome the chronic homesickness that blighted the earlier part of his career, and would be able to count on the support of countrymen David Silva and Javi Garcia at the Etihad.

Come and get me

There's going to be a right royal clean-out at Real Madrid this summer, with a host of players following Mourinho out the exit door. Gonzalo Higuain has put a number of top clubs - and Arsenal - on alert by announcing his intention to leave the Bernabeu. Arsene Wenger is thought to be a big admirer of the Argentine, who would surely be an upgrade on Olivier Giroud up front.

Medical and terms

If Edinson Cavani does leave Napoli this summer, the Serie A club at least look to have found the ideal replacement. German hitman Mario Gomez looks like he's Naples-bound, the club having agreed a fee with Bayern Munich. Ignoring the football reasons, replacing Cavani's cheek bones with Gomez's hair cut is a wise move.
