Chelsea and Liverpool interested in signing star striker – report

Liverpool and Chelsea both want to sign Gonzalo Higuain this summer, say reports

Both Chelsea and Liverpool are keen on luring Gonzalo Higuain to the Premier League this summer, according to reports.

The Argentina international has long been linked with a transfer to England, and was regularly touted as a possible target for Arsenal last summer.

Chelsea are believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements ahead of Antonio Conte’s first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool are also thought to be looking to strengthen their attack as Jurgen Klopp gears up for his first full season at Anfield.

Now, the Daily Express is reporting that both Premier League clubs are interested in signing Higuain from Napoli this summer.

The same report, however, also states that La Liga side Atletico Madrid are keen on luring the Argentina international back to Spain in the current transfer window.
