Juventus have asked Chelsea FC if they would be interested in signing Gonzalo Higuain as part of a deal for Alvaro Morata this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the Italian side are keen on bringing the 25-year-old Morata back to Turin this summer and would be willing to let Higuain leave the club as part of the same deal.

According to the same story, Juventus are keen on bringing Morata back to the Italian club this summer, but they will need to get Higuain off their payroll first.

Morata struggled to make a big impact at Chelsea FC following his move from Real Madrid last summer and his relatively quiet season has prompted suggestions that he could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge this summer.

According to the same report, Juventus initially enquired about signing Morata on a two-year loan deal, but that is unlikely to be accepted by Chelsea FC.

Now, it is being claimed that Chelsea FC are being offered the chance to sign 30-year-old Argentina striker Higuain as part of a deal for Morata to head to Juventus.

Chelsea FC finished fifth in the Premier League and won the FA Cup last season.
