Juventus has signed Gonzalo Higuain for a £75.3 million transfer fee on a four-year deal.

As it known, his departure may signal arrival of another striker as replacement with Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud a top choice of Napoli’s. It also signals that the Italian club may cash in on Paul Pogba on a reported £100 million move to Manchester United.

The Argentine had earlier attracted interests from top clubs in Europe. With likes of Arsenal and Chelsea reported to be in the race to sign the 28-year old.

The striker, who scored 36 goals for Napoli last season, becomes the fifth signing of the summer for Juventus boss Allegri following the additions of Miralem Pjanic, Dani Alves, Medhi Benatia and Marko Pjaca.

Higuan, who signed for Napoli from Real Madrid last two seasons, becomes the third most expensive footballer ever behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, who are both signed to Real Madrid.
