Arsenal have made Gonzalo Higuain their top transfer target, having missed out on Edinson Cavani, according to the Express.
The Paris Saint-Germain striker is said to have selected Chelsea as his favoured destination, leaving Manchester United and Arsenal forced to look elsewhere for attacking options.
Alexandre Pato is known to be available for £18 Million, having returned to form back in Brazil, but the Gunners are said to be concentrating their efforts on signing Argentine star Gonzalo Higuain.
The former Real Madrid striker is currently plying his trade with Napoli, and despite sitting joint-top of the Serie A goalscoring charts, is thought to be open to a move, having missed out Champions League football for the past two seasons.
The Azzurri are known to be stubborn in the transfer market, and have made it clear that they want to keep their goalscorer, which means Arsenal could be forced to stump up the £67 Million needed to meet his minimum fee release clause to land him.
