Chelsea are desperate to land but want the striker only on loan whereas the Italian champions want to sell Higuain when the loan term expires.
It’s an open secret that Chelsea are lacking in attacking third. Chelsea have scored the least number of goals in top 5. Sarri wants to bring a goal scoring striker. After the stalemate draw against Southampton, it seems Sarri desperately want a striker in the January transfer window. It’s been revealed why Juventus reject Chelsea bid for Gonzalo Higuain.
Chelsea have reportedly failed in their latest attempt to secure a loan deal for Juventus forward Gonzalo Higuain.
The Argentina international is currently scheduled to spend the entire campaign at AC Milan, where he has contributed eight goals and two assists from 20 outings in Serie A and the Europa League. However, AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has suggested that Higuain is keen to leave San Siro. Chelsea are known to hold a strong interest in the 31-year-old. Higuain is regarded as a potential replacement for Alvaro Morata. But according to the London Evening Standard, Juventus have decided to turn down an approach from the Blues.

The report suggests that Juventus want an option for Chelsea to sign Higuain for £32m to be included in any deal, but the Premier League side are said to be against those terms. The Argentina striker has made it clear to AC Milan, where he is currently on loan from Juventus, that he wants to leave for Chelsea. Both clubs have travelled to Saudi Arabia where they will play each other on Wednesday in the Italian Super Cup. AC Milan are already looking for alternative forwards to take his spot in the squad and are considering a move for Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek.
Chelsea’s struggling forward Alvaro Morata had been suggested as some part of a loan swap deal, but the Spain international prefers a return to La Liga at this stage.
Given Chelsea’s policy for above 30-year-old players, it’s understandable why they don’t want to sign Higuain permanently. The Blues don’t offer a hefty wage for 30 plus players. Their policy is the sole reason the likes of Lampard, Terry and Fabregas opted to leave Stamford Bridge.
