On-loan AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain has agreed to join Chelsea, reports from Italy have claimed.
It is no secret that boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to add another striker to the squad this season and has been linked with a move for the Argentine striker, who scored 36 goals in Serie A during the 2015/16 season at Napoli under the Italian.
Alvaro Morata has flopped since his move to London last season, and he is heavily tipped to leave the club in the coming windows, while Olivier Giroud is not seen as a permanent front-man, with the Frenchman more of an impact player off the bench rather than a striker that can score 20-30 goals per season.
And according to Spanish website Marca, Sarri is about to get his dream signing in the shape of Higuain, as he has reportedly agreed a short-term move to Stamford Bridge.
Higuaín has not enjoyed the best of seasons at Milan since his shock move in the summer and is seeking a way out of the club, after failing to fins the back of the net for the Italian side since October.
Will Higuain be a good buy for us?
Higuain is a top striker that will score goals if he is happy and settled, but he is not the long-term answer to our problems if reports are true as he is coming to the back-end of his career, and his goal-scoring numbers will eventually drop.
However, he is a real superstar of the game and the kind of striker that will make an immediate impact on the side if he does actually sign for the club.
