Higuain Agrees Terms With Chelsea

Higuain Sarri

The 31-year-old has been targeted by Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, who wants to sign his former charge from Napoli in an effort to improve his club's striker situation.

The Blues are looking to bolster their strike force this month in anticipation of Alvaro Morata's likely departure, with the Spaniard eager to leave England amid interest from Spain and Italy.

Higuain knows Sarri well as he played under him during their time at Napoli where the striker arguably played his best football having scored 91 goals in just 146 games during a three-year spell at Stadio San Paolo.

The Argentinean global is now on loan at the San Siro from Juve but after starting life at Milan in superb form with 7 goals in his first 9 appearances, the striker is going through a dry spell having netted just once in his last 11 outings.

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

Morata is reportedly in talks with Sevilla over a possible loan move while Chelsea are linked with several options - including Higuain and Mauro Icardi.

Higuain has spent the season on loan at Milan from Juventus, but Chelsea will apparently pay €40 million (£36m) and €8m a year in wages to land the Argentina forward.

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

Higuain has netted eight times in 20 matches for Milan.

"He has to make a decision and take on his share of the responsibility", Leonardo said at a press conference on Tuesday.

"There's no point following rumours and gossip". Seeing as he is here, he needs to get down and actually do something for this team.

The striker has been in decent form for AC Milan so far this season, scoring six goals and making one assist in 15 Serie A appearances.
