Journalist: Chelsea FC could agree to Higuain-Morata swap deal
Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth claims Chelsea FC could agree Alvaro Morata-Gonzalo Higuain swap deal
Chelsea FC could swap Gonzalo Higuain and Alvaro Morata with Juventus this summer, according to reporter Dharmesh Sheth.
The Spain international initially made a positive start to his Premier League career following his club record move last summer.
Morata completed a £60m switch from La Liga giants Real Madrid in the 2017 summer transfer window.
The 25-year-old scored 11 goals in 31 games in the Premier League this season to raise questions about his future.
He started their FA Cup final success on the bench as Antonio Conte preferred to stick with French forward Olivier Giroud.
Juventus striker Higuain has been linked with a potential switch to the west London side over the past few weeks.
Sky Sports News reporter Sheth believes Chelsea FC and Juventus could agree a swap deal between Higuain and Morata.
“It is a strange one,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast. “Sky Italy is reporting Inter Milan are interested in him.
“I heard from another source it could involve Higuain and Morata swapping places.”
Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a Champions League spot for the second successive campaign.
The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final thanks to Eden Hazard’s winner from the spot.
