Chelsea transfer news

Gonzalo Higuain's agent has denied his client is set to move to Chelsea and insisted the striker is happy to remain at Juventus.

It has been claimed that the Blues will keep faith in Zappacosta, who has been linked with a return to Italy with Italian giants Inter.

Higuain fuelled speculation he could to leave the Serie A champions this summer when he admitted he would "love" to play in the Premier League. This time over the Blues' pre-season plans.

Maurizio Sarri is being lined up to replace him at Stamford Bridge, with some reports suggesting a deal could be done before the weekend.

Gonzalo Higuain, on the other hand, has been regarded as one of the best strikers in world football.

Higuain and Ronaldo played together for Real Madrid from 2009 to 2013.

The Italian publication says Chelsea will pay £53m up front with a further £8.7m coming in additional add-ons meaning it would be a club-record deal if it goes through - breaking the £58m they paid for Alvaro Morata last summer.

Sarri is keen on reuniting with Higuain and Juve will be prepared to let the 30-year-old leave for €60m. After banging in 32 goals in his debut campaign, his tally dropped to 23 across all competitions last season.

Argentina worldwide Higuain has been linked with a potential move to the west London side after he netted 16 times in Serie A last term. Thus, despite his proven class and experience, it might not be the most productive investment for Chelsea, especially given the fact that the Argentine will also be 31 before the turn of next year, although it remains to be seen how the move pans out if it indeed comes to fruition.
