Crespo: No surprise Higuain chose Napoli over Arsenal

Former Chelsea striker Hernan Crespo isn't surprised by Gonzalo Higuain's move to Napoli.Napoli beat Arsenal to land Argentina international Higuain last week.

"Italian football has a very special place in the heart of Argentineans, as we feel at home here. I am not surprised, for example, that Higuain preferred Napoli to Arsenal," Crespo told Tuttosport.

"Whereas Edinson Cavani arrived at a Napoli side that was already set up, Higuain will settle into a team that is in flux with a Coach who only worked for six months in Italy.

"Pipita is a hitman, but can also help players like Marek Hamsik, Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Maria Callejon score more goals too."
