Gonzalo Higuain close to joining Chelsea after both sides agree terms

Gonzalo Higuain Milan Dudelange Europa League

Dion Dublin believes that Chelsea FC should make signing Callum Wilson from Bournemouth their top priority in the January transfer window.

Morata and Giroud have come out short for Chelsea this term, scoring a mere 14 goals between them in 2018/19.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea are close to sealing a swap deal for AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain on loan as Alvaro Morata heads to the San Siro.

Marina Granovskaia, general director at the London club, also wants to find a way to move the forward on.

Sarri has reportedly told the club that he wants Higuain, who is now on loan at AC Milan, having previously worked with the Argentine at Napoli.

Today is Sarri's birthday, so if, as the report says, he has met Nicolas Higuain in London today, it says a lot about both his work-ethic and how desperate he is for a striker.

Sarri will hope to get the best out of Higuain, whose form in Naples saw him land a move to Juventus in a mouthwatering £77.9m move three years ago.

An agreement has already been reached between the Premier League club and Higuain, but they are looking to release him from his contract at AC Milan, where he is now on loan from Juventus.

By contrast, Higuain netted 38 times in just 42 appearances for Napoli when managed by Sarri in the 2015-16 campaign.

The 31-year-old scored 55 times in 105 games for the Old Lady but he was a victim of the club's desire to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.

Chelsea have been dealt a major blow in their pursuit of Gonzalo Higuain after Juventus made it clear that they will demand a future fee of £32million, according to reports in Italy. Their policy is the sole reason the likes of Lampard, Terry and Fabregas opted to leave Stamford Bridge.
