Maurizio Sarri is eager to bring in Gonzalo Higuain to Stamford Bridge this month and that can only happen when Alvaro Morata moves out of the club.

The striker, who is now on loan at AC Milan, was mobbed by reporters at an airport after Milan's Italian Supercoppa final defeat to Juventus as rumours about his future continue to mount.

Gonzalo Higuain declined to comment on reports of a move to Chelsea on his return to Italy in the early hours of Thursday morning. Five key things to know...

As per Sky, Morata himself would prefer to join Atleti on a permanent deal, but the precise nature of the move (perhaps an initial loan with option to buy) very much depends on the final whirl of negotiations.

He has scored just six Serie A goals this season and there has been plenty of talk about the loan being cut short.

Romano also reported that AC Milan, the club at which Higuain is now on loan, is okay with the transfer.

Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso confirmed it was a fever, not Higuain's possible departure, that kept him out of the XI for Wednesday's match against Juve.

"But I don't think you can put it all on Sarri because his problems pre-dated that".

Higuain played under the Italian at former club Napoli for a single season before moving onto the Old Lady and winning back-to-back titles in Turin.

"It's not fair to speak about Higuain now", Nedved said, via the Mirror.
