Allegri would welcome Higuain at Juventus

Striker also sought by Atletico and Arsenal

My piece for MARCA

Asked about the possibility of signing Gonzalo Higuain this summer, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri made it clear that he's a big admirer of the Napoli striker.

Following the return of Alvaro Morata to Real Madrid, the Italian champions are in the market for a No. 9, and after scoring a record 36 times in Serie A last season there are few hotter properties around.

"Great players are always welcome," Allegri told reporters.

"To compete at the highest level it's always good to have real winners like him.”

Napoli have insisted that they won't sell Higuain for anything less than his €94 million release clause.

But with the 28-year-old having indicated that he won't be renewing his contract - which expires in two years time - speculation has mounted over the future of a player who is also on the radar of Atletico Madrid and Arsenal.
