Chelsea agree Gonzalo HIGUAIN loan deal with Juventus

Juventus will be open to discuss a transfer of Gonzalo Higuain with Chelsea from Thursday, according to their vice president Pavel Nedved.

It is understood the loan could then be extended for another 12 months subject to certain conditions.

"We played well, created a lot of chances and obviously I am happy to have scored the winning goal".

With Sarri clearly unhappy with both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud as his striker options, the Blues really need to sign somebody, but Higuain is not a cheap option.

Speculation about Higuain's future was fuelled by an earlier club photograph with a Saudi prince in which the Argentinian forward was not present.

Maurizio Sarri's side are seriously lacking in goals at the moment and the 31-year-old's track record can not be denied.

The striker joined Juventus from Atlético Madrid in the summer of 2015 and this season is part of a highly risky forward line, alongside Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo.

It marks the first medal Ronaldo has won as a Juve player since he joined from Real Madrid in a €112million deal in the close season and the Portugal star hopes this is the beginning of bigger and better things.

Under the guidance of Sarri, Higuain scored a record 36 goals in 35 Serie A games in the 2015/16 season; a return which earned him a £75m move to Juventus.

Last week Sarri revealed he has told Chelsea that he feels his squad needs two new players in January, with Higuain the first and the other reportedly being Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Leandro Paredes, who would fill the void created by the departure of Cesc Fabregas to Monaco.
