Champions League: Napoli wait on injury doubt Gonzalo Higuain at Arsenal
Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain has emerged as an injury doubt ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League game at Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger tried to sign the Argentina international over the summer when he left Real Madrid but instead the Serie A side landed him in a £34.5m deal this summer.
Higuain has scored three goals in five league games so far this season for his new club and was also on target in the 2-1 Champions League win at home to Borussia Dortmund last time out.
But Arsenal fans may not get the chance to see what they missed out on, with the Napoli medical staff rating him as 50/50 for the game due to a calf problem.
Goran Pandev scored both goals in the 2-0 league win at Genoa at the weekend and he would be the most likely candidate to replace Higuain if he does miss out.
Arsenal v Napoli is live on Tuesday on Sky Sports 2HD at 7pm.
