Chelsea FC are not in talks to sign Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus this summer, according to the player’s agent.

The Blues have been credited with an interest in signing the Argentina striker this summer as they look to try and assemble a team capable of breaking back into the top four next season.

There have been widespread reports suggesting that the Blues were closing in on a deal to bring Higuain to Stamford Bridge this summer as they look to strengthen their team ahead of next term.

However, the player’s agent has now poured cold water on those claims when asked directly about the reports linking him with a move to Chelsea FC.

Nicolas Higuain, the player’s brother and agent, is quoted as saying by football.london: “We are not in talks with Chelsea.

“He [Higuain] wants to respect his contract with Juventus.

“It would be great to see Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo playing together again.”

Chelsea FC are yet to officially announce any new signings this summer despite the Blues having been strongly linked with a number of players ahead of next season.

The west London side will be aiming to at least break back into the top four next season as they look to try and challenge for the Premier League title next term.

The Blues finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup last season.
