Gonzalo Higuain completes Juventus medical ahead of €94million transfer from Serie A rivals Napoli
Gonzalo Higuain has completed a Juventus medical in Madrid and will sign for the Italian champions in a stunning €94million deal.
The Argentinean forward will sign a four-year deal that looks set to tighten Juve's grip on Serie A by stripping rivals Napoli of the country's best player last season.
Higuain scored a stunning 36 league goals in 2015/16, equalling the Italian record for the most in a top-flight campaign.
Liverpool, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid had all shown interest in the 28-year-old but Napoli held firm on their valuation and told suitors they would have to activate the striker's €94million release clause.
