Chelsea are looking for significant upgrades this summer and it could see them invest heavily in the attacking third once again.
It’s widely reported that the Blues are ready to turn their back on Spain striker Alvaro Morata after just one season at Stamford Bridge, after he struggled for consistency and, as a result, missed out in his nation’s World Cup selection.
Chelsea reportedly want to go for broke in the market, having already been linked heavily with Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, and another top-class striker has now been added to the frame.
Italian outlet Calcio Mercato state Chelsea are leading the chase for Juventus’ Gonzalo Higuain, who’ll cost a reported €70m, as the Serie A champions identify Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi as the ideal replacement in the market.
Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on Higuain but may struggle to finance a deal, with question marks regarding their ability to purchase Kylian Mbappe from Monaco, and the news will provide the Blues with encouragement in the market.
