Journalist claims Chelsea FC to hold talks with Argentina star’s agent
Chelsea FC are closing in on the signing of Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus, according to an Italian journalist
Chelsea FC will hold talks with the agent of Gonzalo Higuain ahead of his proposed transfer to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to journalist Giulia Stronati.
The Blues are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to try and build a squad capable of challenging for the title next season.
Chelsea FC confirmed the appointment of Maurizio Sarri as their new manager over the weekend and moved swiftly to bring in Jorginho from Napoli.
Now, Italian journalist Stronati is claiming that the Blues are set to ramp up their efforts to try and bring Juventus striker Higuain to Stamford Bridge in the coming days.
She wrote on Twitter: “On Wednesday there will be new contacts between Higuain‘s agent and Chelsea to finalize the deal.
“It’s ready a 3-years contract (€7,5M at year adds bonus). Blues will pay €60M to #Juventus. #transfers #CFC.”
Chelsea FC will have to make do without Champions League football next season after they finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term.
The west London side will be aiming to at least mount a Premier League title challenge in Sarri’s first campaign in charge at Stamford Bridge next season.
Chelsea FC did manage to end last season on a positive note by claiming victory over Manchester United in the FA Cup final back in May.
