Higuain: Arsenal signing a bargain

Gonzalo Higuaín, who looked set to join Arsenal himself in the summer, has hailed their signing of Mesut Ozil as a “bargain”.

“I had the pleasure to play with Mesut and he’s one of the best players in the world,” he said. “As a striker he’s great to play with because you know that Özil is going to create scoring chances for you. When you look at some of this summer’s transfer deals, you have to say that Mesut was a great deal for Arsenal.”
