Higuain Agrees Terms With Chelsea

Gonzalo Higuain Milan Dudelange Europa League

The 31-year-old forward has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge since the arrival of Maurizio Sarri last summer as a replacement for under-firing Alvaro Morata.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri's primary target is Higuain, who he worked with during his time at Napoli.

Sarri has not lost his desire to sign Higuain and it is claimed the Argentine has given the green light to the move.

The Bournemouth striker has been in solid form so far this season, scoring nine goals and making five assists in 20 Premier League appearances for Eddie Howe's side.

The report details that the Argentina worldwide could make the switch to the Premier League in January, as Milan are prepared to cut his loan spell with them.

For now, Gonzalo Higuain's future remains up in the air, with the player also coming in for criticism from AC Milan.

Chelsea are continuing their efforts to sign AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to reports from England.

Nevertheless, Higuain is Sarri's number one choice and recently dubbed him a "goal machine", with the forward having netted 36 times - a career high - in his one and only season under Sarri.

Any agreement to bring in Higuain this month will not be easy, however, with Chelsea reluctant to deviate from their policy of offering only one-year contracts to players over the age of 30 or commit to any lucrative obligation to buy him from Juventus at the end of the season.

"He had a tough moment, he has to put it behind him and get to work", said Leonardo.

The 32-year-old French World Cup victor may have only scored one goal in the league (against Tottenham Hotspur), but his ability to dovetail with Eden Hazard in attack can be the catalyst for Chelsea rocketing through the second half of the season.
