Athletic Club may be interested in signing Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain as a free agent this summer, according to Marca.

The Primera División side have a Basque-only player policy since 1912, however Higuain is a great-grandson of a Basque who emigrated to Argentina and a move for the former Real Madrid forward is a potential option.

The 32-year-old is a dual Argentine and French national. Born in Brest, France in 1987, his father. Jorge played for Stade Brestois from 1987-88, scoring one goal for the Ligue 1 club. Jorge Higuain once spoke about his family’s Basque roots when his oldest son Federico played for Real Sociedad. “My father always told me that he had been taught that the Basques are neither Spanish nor French, only Basques.”
