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.
