Higuain: I would like to play in England

Gonzalo Higuain says he is happy at Juventus, but would welcome the opportunity to play in England’s Premier League.

Reports in Italy have suggested that Juve will listen to offers for the Argentina international, just two years after they signed him from Napoli.

Higuain has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea in the past, but is not aware of reports about a potential move away from Turin.

“I have a contract with Juventus and no-one has told me any different,” the 30-year-old told ESPN. “I’m very calm, my soul remains in Turin for now.

“The Premier League? Of course I like it, it’s the most beautiful league in the world and I’d like to play in it.”

Higuain is part of the Argentina squad that is fine tuning their preparations for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
