Chelsea agree to sign Gonzalo Higuain as Alvaro Morata heads for Sevilla

Gonzalo Gerardo Higuaín is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a striker for Italian club Milan on loan from Juventus and the Argentina national team

A swap deal involving former Juve striker Alvaro Morata, the Spaniard who is out of favour at Stamford Bridge, has been mooted.

Higuain enjoyed his best run of form under Sarri, scoring 37 goals with the Italian boss prior to moving to Juventus.

Higuain meanwhile will battle Olivier Giroud to get the nod as Chelsea's main striker.

Higuain's current sporting director has challenged his striker to improve at Milan, with a move to Stamford Bridge looking increasingly unlikely.

"Gonzalo has lived through this moment but now he has to leave it behind him".

"If Chelsea want him, Juventus are trying to get them to match that same kind of deal, paying a big loan fee up front and agreeing to sign Higuain in the summer".

Chelsea boss Sarri happy with Hudson-Odoi for Spurs defeat
The winger started the Blues' Carabao Cup defeat by Tottenham on Tuesday and certainly enhanced his already burgeoning reputation. Bundesliga champions Bayern were reported to have made an improved £35million offer for Hudson-Odoi earlier on Tuesday.

"He has to make a decision and take on his share of the responsibility", the club's sporting director, who last month said there has been no contact with Chelsea, told reporters.

"But with all the rumours, there is no point in me thinking about these different situations until we have something to answer".

A report in the Spanish newspaper Marca claims 31-year-old Higuain will join Christian Pulisic as Chelsea's second signing of the window - although Pulisic will move at the end of the season.

"We want to continue to take the club forward and the team forward, and to do that, we've got to keep our best player".

The Argentina worldwide set a new Serie A goal-scoring record under Sarri at the Stadio San Paolo in the 2015/16 campaign with 36 goals.

"Chelsea have an agreement with Higuain to take him immediately", Gazzetta reported.
