Transfers: Chelsea want to sign Gonzalo Higuain by midday tomorrow - here’s why

Nicolo Barella joining Chelsea in January would be a surprise says David Amoyal

Nicolo Barella joining Chelsea in January would be a surprise says David Amoyal

"I want to stress the fact that Gonzalo has never come to me to tell me he wants to leave".

'Were you all waiting for me?

The speculation has only intensified over the past couple of weeks as Sarri look to sign a striker to replace misfiring Alvaro Morata in the Chelsea FC team.

Higuain, now on loan at AC Milan, came off the bench in Wednesday night's Supercoppa Italiana loss to parent club Juventus in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Higuain became a Juventus and Serie A record-signing when he moved to Turin in 2016 for €90 million, after scoring a league-record 36 goals under Sarri at Napoli in the previous campaign.

His loan move could be extended by one more year if he reaches certain targets in terms of appearances and goals by the end of the season.

In 22 games, Higuain has managed to score just eight goals - a poor return by his standards.

He saved a set point at 6-5 with a punchy backhand volley down the line and had Federer on the ropes in the tiebreak. Federer, knowing he was fighting for survival, upped the tempo and forced Evans to miss two hard volleys.

The move for Higuain is a strong gesture of support for Sarri who has wanted the 31-year-old since taking over at Stamford Bridge last summer.

Bayern Munich confirmed on Wednesday that they are in talks with Chelsea over buying Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Atletico Madrid can not sign new players until they sell one first due to the club meeting their capped wage limit of €293 million (£259 million) per annum.

If he joins the Blues, do you think Higuain will score more regularly for Chelsea than Morata did?

Morata spent the weekend in Madrid holding talks with a variety of potential suitors, though Sevilla have since pulled out of the race due to the cost of signing the Spain worldwide.

But, like Higuain, Nedved was unwilling to discuss the deal out of respect for Milan.

It will be fascinating to see how he fares in the Premier League.
