Chelsea target Gonzalo Higuain has great history with Maurizio Sarri

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

Chelsea are ready to loan out Alvaro Morata in January with Maurizio Sarri keen on bringing in Gonzalo Higuain as his replacement, sources have told ESPN FC.

Sarri has not lost his desire to sign Higuain and it is claimed the Argentine has given the green light to the move. The forward's agent is in London to finalize a move.

The report states that negotiations are now underway and Juventus want Chelsea to take over Milan's loan agreement with the obligation to buy the striker for €36 million (R576 million).

Stone, though, thinks Bournemouth's £50m valuation of Wilson is fair considering the homegrown quota Premier League clubs have to meet.

Higuain had his most successful season under Sarri, breaking the Serie A goalscoring record with 36 goals in the 2015/16 campaign.

In total, the 31-year-old found the back of the net 71 times in 94 appearances during his three year reign at the club after which he moved to the Allianz Stadium in a mega deal around £75m move to Juventus in 2016.

However, the deal remains complicated with AC Milan remaining reluctant to terminate their existing loan contract with the Argentine and this could shift the Blues' interest elsewhere.

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

His age aside, his wage demands aside, the difficulty of negotiating with two teams aside, Higuain scores goals, and Chelsea need goals.

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.
