Tottenham, Arsenal battle for want-away Real Madrid striker Higuain

Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain is wanted by Tottenham and Arsenal.

The People says sources in Spain say the Real Madrid and Argentina striker has told Bernabeu officials he wants to join a club in England ahead of next season, and has been given permission to start negotiating a move.

Spurs desperately need to sign another striker to provide competition for Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor, and landing the South American superstar would be a real statement of intent.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is also interested in Higuain and the Gunners have contacted his representatives to make them aware of their interest.
