Gonzalo Higuain’s father has alerted Juventus “nothing has yet been signed” with Arsenal, so they are still in the race.
The Real Madrid striker appeared to have agreed a deal for the move to London, but his father and agent warned that’s not necessarily the case.
“Nothing has yet been signed, but I can assure the negotiations between the clubs are at an advanced stage,” Jorge Higuain told La Repubblica.
“We will not agree any contract before the clubs reach a deal on the transfer. I am sure Arsenal made a big offer, as have Juventus.”
Real Madrid set a price-tag of at least €30m for the Argentina international.
