Chelsea willing to pay £50m for Wilson

Higuain Sarri

A source has confirmed to ESPN FC that Nicolas Higuain - the Argentina forward's brother and agent - has met with Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri in London to discuss a transfer.

Higuain has enjoyed quite an extraordinary career, at least at club level, initially making his name at Real Madrid before going on to garner the reputation of being one of the most best strikers in the world upon his move to Italy.

It is also suggested that the arrival of Higuain will see the door firmly opened for Alvaro Morata to depart.

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

Higuain scored 38 goals across all competitions during his one season under Sarri at Napoli and is a flawless fit for the manager's attacking style of football.

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

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.

"A goal can change things, but if he is to continue here, he needs to take on responsibility".

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

"He is here right now".

Chelsea's hopes of signing Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain during the January transfer window could reportedly be scuppered by a row between manager Maurizio Sarri and director Marina Granovskaia. "Seeing as he is here, he needs to get down and actually do something for this team".

The 32-year-old French World Cup victor may have only scored one goal in the league (against Tottenham Hotspur), but his ability to dovetail with Eden Hazard in attack can be the catalyst for Chelsea rocketing through the second half of the season.
