Athletic Bilbao linked with surprise move for Juventus striker

There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Gonzalo Higuain in the last period.

Athletic Bilbao are linked with surprise move for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to the football transfer rumours in British media.

This season, Higuain has scored 8 goals and provided 8 assists in 33 appearances for Juventus.

The 32-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in Argentina.

As a member of Argentina national football team, Gonzalo Higuain won 75 caps and he scored 31 goals.

By the club’s own admission, Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is Athletic Bilbao’s number one transfer target.

Gaizka Garitano is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

Athletic Bilbao are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

There is no doubt that Higuain will take Athletic Bilbao’s attack to a different level.

According to the report, “Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is being linked with a sensational move to Athletic Bilbao. Higuain, after a tough past 12 months away with Chelsea and AC Milan, has rediscovered some of his best form this season back in Turin. However, the 32 year-old could yet be on the move this summer – and Bilbao are exploring the prospect of signing the former Real Madrid star. Higuain has Bilbao roots, courtesy of his great grandfather, who was a Basque. An Argentina international, Higuain was actually born in Brest, France, where father Jorge played before returning to South America.”


Athletic Bilbao will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Higuain to join the club.

Signing the 32-year-old would be a masterstroke from Garitano.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Athletic Bilbao.

It will be interesting to see whether Athletic Bilbao will make their move during the summer transfer window.
