Gonzalo Higuaín’s record breaking season for Napoli has drawn the interest from huge clubs across the continent and Liverpool are the latest to be linked with a move for the goalscorer, per La Gazzetta Dello Sport.
Liverpool’s charismatic manager, Jürgen Klopp was spotted watching Argentina’s recent Copa America fixture against Chile. Gerardo Martino’s men claimed a 2-1 victory in the match and surprisingly, during his 74 minutes on the pitch, Higuaín failed to find the back of the net.
Higuaín’s release clause currently stands at €94.7 million a fee that seems a bit steep for the Reds this summer, especially when you consider they failed to qualify for any European football following their 8th place league finish.
The interest in the 28-year-old hitman has been widespread already this summer. That’s due to his 36-goal season for Napoli, a remarkable feat that saw him break Gunnar Nordahl’s 66-year-old record. Even more impressively, Higuaín broke the record in 35 appearances, which was two less than Nordahl in 1950.
