Chelsea news: Blues keen on AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain in January swap deal with Alvaro Morata

Chelsea are interested in signing AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain in a swap deal with Alvaro Morata.

Maurizio Sarri knows the Argentine well having worked with him during his time in charge of Napoli and he scored 36 goals in the 2015/16 season – their one campaign together.

Chelsea want Gonzalo Higuain

The Blues are in desperate need of firepower with neither Morata or Olivier Giroud trusted to lead the attack.

In their last two league matches, Chelsea have played with Eden Hazard up front and he was again called upon to score the winner against Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup quarter final.

Morata previously spent two years between 2014 to 2016 with Juventus where he won two Serie A titles and two Coppa Italias but would be keen on a return to Italy according to Sky Italia.
