Chelsea make a move for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain

Higuain told to decide future and show AC Milan responsibility

Chelsea are now fourth in the Premier League, four points behind London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur in third.

Sarri has shuffled his pack around due to the injuries to Giroud and Morata by playing Eden Hazard as the striker in recent games. Sevilla appeared well placed to land the former Real Madrid striker earlier this week but the talks have hit complications according to Guillem Balague who tweeted: "Sevilla gives up on the possibility of Morata joining them this transfer window".

Higuain is keen on a move although Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has reservations, with the Stamford Bridge outfit reluctant to offer big contracts to players over the age of 30.

A World Cup runner-up in 2014, he is also a prolific victor of trophies having claimed three Liga titles with Real Madrid and two Serie A victories at Juventus amid a plethora of cup successes at Madrid, Napoli and Juve.

He scored 36 goals in one year under the Italian tactician and reports in Italy have indicated that he wants to join up with him again.

Higuain has netted eight times in 20 matches for Milan.

He said: "A goal can change things, but if he is to continue here, he needs to take on responsibility". "Not this continual, 'yes, no, I'm not sure'".

"He had a tough moment, he has to put it behind him and get to work".

However, any deal is complicated by the fact that he is on loan at San Siro from Juventus.

Higuain himself cost the Old Lady £75m back in 2016, where he has won the Serie A twice and Coppa Italia twice.
