Juventus will only sell Gonzalo Higuain if the Serie A champions receive an offer in the region of €60m amid talk of interest from Chelsea FC, according to a report in Italy.

Italian media outlet La Stampa, as quoted by Calciomercato, is reporting that the Serie A giants are prepared to offload the experienced Argentina international in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that the South American forward is attracting interest from a host of Europe’s top clubs, including La Liga side Atletico Madrid and Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain.

Chelsea FC missed out on a space in the Champions League following a fifth-placed finish behind Liverpool FC after a 3-0 loss to Newcastle United in their final game of the Premier League campaign.

The Blues signed Alvaro Morata in a £58m deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the 2017 summer transfer window.

However, the Spain international struggled to maintain his strong start and finished his first season in the Premier League with a disappointing return of 11 goals in 31 games in the 2017-18 season.

Chelsea FC have failed to finish in the top four in two of the past three seasons under Guus Hiddink and Conte.
