Transfer speculation dominates the headlines once again as we bring you the latest Chelsea news.
Chelsea have been told to ‘break the bank’ to re-sign Diego Costa rather than sign up striker Gonzalo Higuain.
Higuaín, who broke the Serie A goalscoring record for a single season at Napoli back in 2015/16, has made no secret of his desire to work with Sarri once again.
And according to the Sun, Higuain’s wish is set to be granted with us as we are on the verge of a temporary agreement for the Argentina forward.
It’s claimed flop Alvaro Morata will head the other way in a season-long loan to Milan, as he simply cannot get going in a Chelsea shirt, despite numerous chances given by Sarri.
But Peter Crouch believes Chelsea should instead look into re-signing Spain international Costa, who scored 59-goals in 120 appearances for the club.
‘Chelsea have scored the fewest goals of the top six sides,’ Crouch said in a column for Daily Mail website
‘A return of 38 from 21 matches isn’t enough to win you a title, no matter how good your defence is.
‘The one thing you need is someone to score you 30 goals and they do not have a player like Harry Kane, Mo Salah or Sergio Aguero.
‘Not so long ago, they did. Diego Costa would absolutely transform Chelsea’s fortunes and, if it was down to me, I’d break the bank to re-sign him.
‘You can talk about Gonzalo Higuain or Karim Benzema, but I think Costa would be the one to take Chelsea where they want to be.
‘There was something about the way Costa’s career finished at Stamford Bridge that doesn’t sit right. I know there were huge problems between him and Antonio Conte, but even so, it seemed like they didn’t put up any kind of fight to keep him.’

Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic says he is excited by the challenge of playing for Chelsea in the Premier League.
Despite speculation that Dortmund were determined to keep Pulisic in the Bundesliga, the American international ended months of speculation over his future to finally seal a move to Stamford Bridge in a deal worth around £58 million.
It is believed Pulisic wanted to test himself in the Premier League, and rather than try and talk him into signing a big new contract, Dortmund decided they had enough cover to fill the void if he left.
And although he will not be officially signing until the end of the season, Pulisic has told Chelsea fans that he is excited about playing in the Premier League next season.
He told Sky Sports: “I always liked the way Chelsea played and still play football today, and I think that style suits me very well…I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League and I’m looking forward to it.”
Real Madrid target Eden Hazard believes Cesc Fabregas has given “everytHing” for Chelsea during his five years at Stamford Bridge.
Fabregas has played his last game for the club after helping Maurizio Sarri’s side reach the next round of the FA Cup with an easy 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend, as speculation increases that he is all set to sign for French giants Monaco.
It has been claimed we have decided to let him go this month for a small fee rather than lose him for nothing when his contract expires and the 31-year-old appeared to wave goodbye to supporters after coming off at the weekend.
Now Hazard, who is also expected to pack his bags, jump on a plane and sign for Real Madrid at the end of the season, has admitted that Fabregas had given the club everyting he had since his move from Barcelona in 2014.
Hazard was quoted on the Sky Sports website: “Everything.
“I can say that I was lucky to play with him. Since the beginning when he came, we saw it the first year when we won the double together.
“He is a top guy on the pitch and off the pitch, a great friend of mine.
“I have admiration for this guy and I hope he will have a good future. He is a bit old now but he is still very good, he will enjoy it.”
