Higuain Agrees Terms With Chelsea

Chelsea being linked with a move for Callum Wilson is a "huge compliment" to the Bournemouth striker, says manager Eddie Howe.

Alvaro Morata has failed to impress and wants a return to Spain, with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid among the clubs interested in him.

Higuain excelled under Sarri during his time at Napoli, scoring 38 goals in his final season before making a big money move to rivals Juve.

According to report from the Stamford Bridge, Higuain is expected to earn about £140,000 a week when he finally joins the club.

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

England worldwide Wilson has found the back of the net nine times in the Premier League this season and has registered five assists.

Higuain sent out on loan to AC Milan last August after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and the Argentine has been unable to find his footing at the club.

Higuain is on-loan at AC Milan from Juventus, which makes the deal a hard one to negotiate, especially in January.

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

That's forced Chelsea into re-thinking their strategy and the Evening Standard report that Higuain's brother and agent, Nicolas, is in London today to potentially thrash out a deal.

"He is here right now".

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

Sarri has reportedly told the club that he wants Higuain, who is now on loan at AC Milan, having previously worked with the Argentine at Napoli.

Chelsea, for their part, are in need of a striker after deploying Eden Hazard as a false nine for a large chunk of the season.

But it is the latter that is Sarri's choice, having worked wonders with the former Real Madrid hitman at Napoli.
