Arsenal need Real Madrid to appoint a new manager before they can complete the signing of Gonzalo Higuain, according to reports.
Gonzalo Higuain's proposed move to Arsenal is reportedly waiting on Carlo Ancelotti being appointed as the new Real Madrid manager.
The Argentine apparently underwent a medical with the Gunners on Monday having agreed terms on a transfer, despite continued interest from Juventus.
However, a deal hinges on managerless Madrid announcing Ancelotti as their new boss before the switch can be signed off.
Jeremy Wilson of The Telegraph tweeted on Monday night: "On Higuain to Arsenal, deal agreed in principle with player and club. But Real stalling on signing it off [before] new manager's in place"
The transfer fee that would take Higuain to the Emirates Stadium is reported to be around £22m.
