Morata in talks, Higuain agrees deal, monster Piatek offer in Chelsea daily roundup

Here is a roundup of the latest Chelsea news, gossip and rumours from IcChelseanews.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata in in advanced talks to sign for Atletico Madrid.

Since his move to Stamford Bridge just a few seasons ago, Morata has struggled to adapt to life in the premier league and has cut a frustrated figure ever since, with constant speculation that he is looking for a way out to a much easier league like Seria A or La Liga.

He has only netted 8-goals for the club this season and his lack of finishing has led to speculation boss Maurizio Sarri is now looking to announce a deal for Gonzalo Higuaín, with reports over the past few days suggesting that the Italian has convinced the club that the Argentine is the striker he wants.

And according to reports on the Sky Sports website, we are now in deep talks with Madrid about a deal for Morata, with reports suggesting that a fee of £45 million will be agreed between the clubs, a £35 million loss on what we paid just a few seasons ago.

Chelsea have agreed a deal with Juventus to sign Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuaín on a loan deal.

With boss Maurizio Sarri desperate to add a world class striker to his front-line, there has been alot of speculation in the media which have suggested that Higuain is the man the Italian wants.

Higuain had his most successful season under Sarri, breaking the Serie A goalscoring record with 36 goals in the 2015/16 campaign, and is reportedly keen to link-up with his former coach suggestions in the media have claimed.

However, AC Milan boss Grennaro Gattuso hinted that Higuain will stay at the Italian giants, claiming the striker had never asked to leave.

Gattuso Tweeted: “There are lots of rumors concerning @G_Higuain but he’s relaxed, training well with his teammates and working hard.

“@G_Higuain is always smiling and joking with his teammates. Probably something changed after the penalty missed and the red card against Juve.

“I want to stress the fact that Gonzalo has never come to me to tell me he wants to leave”

But now reports on the Sky Sports website have claimed that we have agreed a loan deal with Juventus, with the option ox extending another 12 months if certain aspects of the deal are met.

Genoa director Giorgio Perinetti has claimed it will take a monster offer to let go of Chelsea and AC Milan transfer target Krzysztof Piatek.

Piatek is currently taking world football by storm after starting the season in stunning fashion, scoring thirteen goals in Seria A and putting in a number of stunning performances that now makes him one of the hottest transfer targets out there.

And with boss Maurizio Sarri not happy with his front-line and is desperate to add that goal-scorer to the squad which would help Eden Hazard out, he has been linked with a move for Piatek over the past few months.

However, in recent weeks they have switched their attentions to Gonzalo Higuain, who seemingly wants the move to Stamford Bridge and that has meant that Milan are now keen to try and secure a transfer deal for Piatek.

But we have been boosted by the news of a transfer deal in the summer, after Perinetti reiterated his will to keep the player at the Stadio Ferraris this month.

He was quoted on the Calciomercato website: “For now there have only been surveys, there has been no offer and nothing serious.

“If we receive a monster offer, then we will evaluate what to do. But for now, I repeat, nothing has arrived, nor do we have any need to sell Piatek.”
