Chelsea heavily linked to sign Gonzalo Higuain next


For Chelsea’s new manager Maurizio Sarri who has already spent £57 million on Jorginho as his first signing, Gonzalo Higuain looks set to be next on the radar of the Italian according to reports.

The Mirror claims the Italian is prepared to sell both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud (who has just 12 months left on his contract) to make room for Gonzalo Higuain.

The Blues, however, will face stiff competition for the Argentina striker’s signature, with AC Milan also circling, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Chelsea could use Morata, who they paid £58m to Real Madrid for 12 months ago, in a swap deal for the Argentinian striker, who has previously worked with Sarri at Napoli.

Higuain’s best season of his career, which included 38 goals in all competitions, came under the Italian in 2015-16, and Juve are prepared to recoup some of the £75m they paid Napoli two years ago having pulled off the signing of the summer in Cristiano Ronaldo.
