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.

Juventus could be set to ask Chelsea for the inclusion of Alvaro Morata in their pursuit of Gonzalo Higuain this summer, according to Italian reports.

The Old Lady have been consistently linked with a move for Morata in recent months and with the Blues closing in on their star striker Higuain, Corriere dello Sport (via Calciomercato) indicate that Juve could look to demand the Spanish forward as a sweetener in any deal.

With the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as Chelsea’s new manager seemingly imminent, Higuain is understood to be a top target for the club.

Juventus are believed to be open to selling their star forward despite his impressive performances throughout last season. This is largely down to the recent arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid in a deal worth £99.2 million.

It’s shaping up to be a summer of upheaval at Stamford Bridge, and it seems there could be a shakeup in Chelsea’s attacking options as well.

A forward is high on the list of priorities this summer for Gennaro Gattuso, which has seen the club linked with a move for Higuain. Milan defender Leonardo Bonucci is angling for a back to Turin, which has seen the Old Lady offer the striker in return in an attempt to seal a deal. Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri are also said to be keen to bring the striker to the Premier League. The pair worked together at Napoli and still maintain a strong relationship. The Blues are ready to offer as much as €60 million for the forward, but reports in Spain say no officials offers have been lodged just yet.
