Rafa excited by Higuain arrival

Napoli boss Rafael Benitez believes former Arsenal target Gonzalo Higuain will take the ambitious Serie A club to the next level.

We were looking for a quality player. We were looking for someone playing at the highest level.

We have signed a player who comes from Real Madrid and we have signed a striker who has scored a hatful of goals and who will adapt very well to our system - an attacking system. We needed a player like this.

We are all working together to ensure the players we want arrive. We have to sign players who will do well for Napoli for the next three or four years.
