Higuain tempted by Chelsea move if Sarri takes over

  Higuain tempted by Chelsea move if Sarri takes over Gonzalo Higuain would reportedly be ‘tempted’ by a move to Chelsea should Maurizio Sarri take over this summer. Football Italia, as cited on Calcio Mercato, claim that Juventus are ready to sell the player this summer and a move to Stamford Bridge could excite the former Real Madrid striker. Despite scoring 16 times in Serie A last season, Juventus are ready to cash in on the player and look for a younger striker to lead the line for the Old Lady. Higuain is known to have a strong relationship with Maurizio Sarri from their time together at Napoli. Sarri is expected to be named as Antonio Conte’s successor at Stamford Bridge imminently, in what has become one of the most drawn-out sagas of the summer so far. It is yet to be seen whether or not Chelsea will meet Juventus’ asking price for the player, but they could use the Italian’s interest in Alvaro Morata to help strike a deal.

Gonzalo Higuain has reportedly agreed to join Chelsea this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Calcio Mercato reports that the striker has accepted that he will leave Juventus following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The report claims that the striker has informed his brother Nicolas, who is also his agent, that he is ready to accept a move to Chelsea subject to agreeing personal terms.

A deal is far from complete with Higuain keen to ensure his deal would match that of his Juventus contract.

The Old Lady are reportedly asking for €55 million for the striker this summer, with Chelsea the only club believed to be in the running.

Chelsea agree €60m deal to sign Higuain

  Chelsea agree €60m deal to sign Higuain Chelsea and Juventus have reportedly agreed a €60 million fee in a deal for Gonzalo Higuain. Reports in Italy from Sport Mediaset, as cited on the Metro, claim that the deal would be pending the arrival of Maurizio Sarri, who is expected to replace Antonio Conte in the coming days. Higuain has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge since the summer window opened, as Chelsea go in search of a replacement for Alvaro Morata. The latter struggled during his first season in London and is said to be keen on a move back to Italy. Juventus themselves are ready to sell Higuain this summer and could move for Morata if the price is right. Sarri is a huge fan of Higuain and the pair worked well together during their time in Naples. The Old Lady have also been linked with an eye-catching €100 million move for Cristiano Ronaldo in recent days, but it is yet to be seen how Higuain’s future will affect that.

The forward worked with Maurizio Sarri, who is expected to take over at Stamford Bridge imminently, at Napoli and the pair have a strong relationship.

Should Higuain join Chelsea this summer, his arrival is likely to cast an end to Alvaro Morata’s time at the club with a move back to Italy looking likely.

Italian agent expects to see Higuain join Chelsea .
Italian football agent Silvio Pagliari believes Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain will join Chelsea this summer. Speaking on Sky Sports Italia, as reported by Calciomercato, Pagliari believes Higuain will make the move to London and he also expects Alvaro Morata to depart the club. The Spanish striker is being linked with a move to AC Milan and Pagliari, who works with a host of Italian footballers, says a move to the San Siro could happen. “For me Higuain will go to Chelsea, while Morata will close with Milan Bonucci-Caldara? If I know Marotta at least a little, they must laugh to close a deal like that.” Higuain is being heavily linked with moves both to Chelsea and AC Milan. The former Real Madrid striker is set to leave the Old Lady following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo. As one of Juventus’ biggest earners, the club are looking to offload the striker in an attempt to balance the books. Chelsea are also being linked with a move for Higuain’s team-mate Daniele Rugani, a player Maurizio Sarri knows well from their time together at Empoli.
