AC Milan's Higuain poised for Chelsea move

The Argentinean worldwide 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.

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

Sarri has made Higuain his number one choice to replace Morata, having worked with him previously at Napoli, but now The Telegraph claim Chelsea are also looking at Vardy.

However, Goal understands that Chelsea will not be signing Higuain during the January transfer window, with a deal proving too complicated due to the Argentine being on loan at Milan from Juventus.

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

As well as Higuain, Chelsea are believed to be keeping tabs on Bournemouth's Callum Wilson, who was a reported £50 million price tag.

Higuain had been hampered by a back injury earlier in the season but broke his two-month goal-scoring drought before the winter break.

However, Milan sporting director Leonardo warned on Tuesday he had to get down to work.

"He has to make a decision and take on his share of the responsibility", said Leo.

"Gonzalo has lived through this moment but now he has to leave it behind him".

"He is here right now".
