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

Maurizio Sarri is keen on snapping up a striker this month, and he's hoping to reunite with Higuain following their stint working together at Napoli.

If Sarri is unable to convince Chelsea over Higuain, the Italian will turn his attention to Wilson, who has scored 10 goals in 23 matches in all competitions for Bournemouth this season.

Higuain's current sporting director has challenged his striker to improve at Milan, with a move to Stamford Bridge looking increasingly unlikely.

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

In total, the 31-year-old found the back of the net 71 times in 94 appearances during his three year reign at the club after which he moved to the Allianz Stadium in a mega deal around £75m move to Juventus in 2016.

Higuain is now on loan to AC Milan from Juventus, but the Rossoneri are reportedly ready and willing to let the 31-year-old end his spell early as they are struggling to pay his hefty wages.

Chelsea have made a move for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, Marca reports. However, this season Higuain hasn't been quite so productive in front of goal and he has struggled to win over the AC Milan fans.

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

Brazilian Leonardo added: "There's no point following rumours and gossip".

The striker has been in decent form for AC Milan so far this season, scoring six goals and making one assist in 15 Serie A appearances.
