One of the best strikers in Serie A could is about to get paid in a major way if the big spenders in the top-five leagues have anything to say about it. Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has been a nearly-unstoppable force as a striker, scoring over 30 goals this season and now a pair of Premier League giants and a Champions League powerhouse want a piece of him.
According to the Shoot, Higuain has been targeted by Chelsea and Man United from the Premier League as well as Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. Per the source, Higuain has an estimated price tag of £73 million.
Man United spent a small fortune on strikers earlier this season, buying Memphis Depay and Anthony Martial at a premium. Chelsea, meanwhile, are likely to part with Loic Remy in the near future while Diego Costa is no lock to come back next season. As for Bayern Munich, numerous clubs are looking to raid their roster for their prized striking duo of Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller.
Higuain has 29 goals in 30 Serie A matches this season and 31 goals in all competitions.
