Quoted by the Daily Express, Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has insisted he is solely focused on Argentina amid talk about his future.

The striker was in impressive form again last season, bagging 41 goals in 44 appearances in all competitions for club and country.

As is the case with world-class forwards, his form has reportedly not gone unnoticed, with several sides all reportedly looking to sign him.

One team linked with his signature are Liverpool, who could very well be in the market for a striker this summer as Jurgen Klopp rebuilds his squad.

Speculation about his future was rife two weeks ago after the German boss was spotted watching Argentina in America.

Higuain though, has insisted that everyone in Naples should remain calm, as he is only thinking about the national team at present.

“All those people in Naples must remain calm,” the Daily Express, reports him saying.

“I’m calm, but now I’m just thinking about the national team. We’re just one step away from the final.”

There is no denying that a Liverpool move for Higuain would be one of the biggest signings of this summer transfer window.

They may have Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi and Danny Ings in their squad but the Argentine striker would represent a major improvement on those three.
