Gonzalo Higuaín signing for Arsenal seems set to be one of the longest sagas of the summer transfer window.

If you believe what you read on Twitter, the £22m rated Real Madrid striker Higuaín, has been 'close to signing' for the last three weeks and has had completed at least two medicals.

Arsenal fans are of course excited by the prospect of finally signing a world class striker, but in years gone by the north London club have 'completed' the deals of many players which never actually signed for the team.

Twitter users have taken to the social network site to share their delight at the potential signing - but are also now poking fun at the amount of time the deal is taking to secure the services of the Argentinean forward.

Higuaín's brother has even been quoted saying “If Tevez joins Juve, is Higuain closer to Arsenal? I think so.”

If Gonzalo Higuaín does sign on the dotted line, it will be a great capture for Arsenal and might finally make them title contenders.
