  • Higuain told to decide future and show AC Milan responsibility

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.

Meanwhile, SunSport quoting Marca reports that the former Real Madrid forward has agreed terms with west London club, adding that his move could be finalised today.

The 31-year-old Argentina worldwide reportedly wants to join his former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri at the English club, who would take over Milan's option to eventually make the deal permanent.

"The interesting thing about that, there's various rumours around, Gonzalo Higuain has been linked with Chelsea many, many times, it's interesting to see that Bournemouth took a punt on Dominic Solanke even though he isn't fit and won't be fit until next month".

Sarri has not lost his desire to sign Higuain and it is claimed the Argentine has given the green light to the move.




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.

However, the FA Cup defending champions are said to be targeting Sevilla's Andre Silva - who is on loan from AC Milan and could cost the Spanish League side £32 million to buy in the summer.

Higuain was farmed out to Milan last summer after Cristiano Ronaldo's £100m move from Juventus and has scored six goals in 15 Serie A games this season.

Higuain is now on loan at AC Milan and any deal would require them to terminate his deal early - however, it contains an obligation to buy the striker in the summer for £32m.

"He had a tough moment, he has to put it behind him and get to work". While the 31-year-old has been a key figure for the Rossoneri this season, he is believed to have had his head turned by the interest from Chelsea, who are in need of a top class striker.
