Arsenal hope to seal a deal for Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain this week.AS says despite contrary reports, terms are agreed between clubs over a €30 million fee for the Argentine, with the Gunners keen to close the deal before Friday.

Higuain returned to Madrid last Thursday and has spent the summer training on his own in order to be fit enough to impress his new teammates at Arsenal. While he's focused on his physical training, Higuain's father has agreed personal terms on his behalf with Arsenal officials.

The Argentine now has his heart set on moving to London and even a chat with new Real coach Carlo Ancelotti won't dissuade him.

Higuain's Snr has told Real officials to treat his son with respect as they'll be making a healthy profit on the €12 million they paid River Plate six years ago for the striker.
