In sports, transfer and trade talk is often heard, and for soccer, there is talk now of Gonzalo Higuain considering a move to Liverpool. As ESPN reports, he is said to want to play for Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp.
Higuain has set up a Series A record of 36 goals in 35 league games. This would make him a worthy addition to Liverpool, which is in need of a good striker, the Metro notes. Daniel Sturridge has injuries, which then opens up the possibility of Higuain coming in to fill that void. As of now Higuain is still connected with Napoli. That might soon change though if ever the move pushes through.
This is despite the fact that Liverpool has missed out on its European qualification. Higuain as well has two years left on his contract with Napoli. It which might do all it can to keep him in the team. He is said to also consider a possible move to either Arsenal or Manchester United, aside from the aforementioned talk about Liverpool.
Liverpool though has yet to send out a formal invitation to him, as his representatives are said to be surprised that it has not done so yet. For his part, Higuain is said to really consider playing for Klopp.
While all this talk of moving to Liverpool is happening, Napoli seems ready as well to have a replacement if ever it would happen. Everton’s Romelu Lukaku is said to be tapped to play for Napoli if the move does push through and even after expected attempts by Napoli to keep Higuain in doesn’t work.
It remains to be seen if Higuain would actually move to Liverpool. While there is much talk about it, nothing has been formally set yet. Transfer talks would even intensify more as summer approaches and the teams take the time to rebuild.
