Chelsea are looking to significantly improving their ranks after failing to qualify for next season’s Champions League and a number of changes could occur in the final third.
Club-record signing Alvaro Morata is widely reported to be on the way out after a disappointing first season at Stamford Bridge, where the Spain international has struggled for consistency and fell behind January recruit Olivier Giroud in the pecking order during the latter stages of the season.
The Blues are reported to be ready to sell Morata to raise funds in order to move for a world class striking target and have been heavily linked with Juventus ace Gonzalo Higuain, who could be part of a deal taking Morata back to Turin.
Juventus are ready to do a deal, according to reports cited by CalcioMercato, but will command a whopping €60m for the Argentina international – which Chelsea are likely to only be able to afford if they offload Morata.
However, Higuain will have suitors elsewhere in Europe as it’s stated Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on the World Cup ace, with both clubs able to offer Champions League football.
