  • Higuain told to decide future and show AC Milan responsibility

The Spanish striker has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League and appears to have lost the confidence of Sarri.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Sarri wants that man to be Higuain, with AC Milan willing to cut short the Argentine's loan from Juventus after just eight months and just six goals in 15 Serie A appearances this season. In particular, the veteran striker became a fearsome force at Napoli, before he joined Juventus in the summer of 2016.

The London Evening Standard are reporting on Wednesday that Sarri has once again asked the Chelsea board to try and seal the signature of Higuain.

What does the future hold for Higuain?

With Alvaro Morata struggling for form and Olivier Giroud injured, Chelsea have confirmed their interest in the England worldwide.

Higuain is thus, a viable target for Chelsea, who can have a short-term solution in a striker who is a proven quantity and can help take some burden off Hazard.


Stone believes the writing is on the wall for Morata and Giroud, insisting Sarri has come to the conclusion that neither are "the real deal".

There is likely to be a hold-up, as Milan will need to sign a replacement, although they have Financial Fair Play troubles looming too.

Additionally, a £32 million price tag has Chelsea hesitant as well, although they have now inched closer to signing Higuain.

Vardy has scored seven goals so far in the Premier League and is one of the options that the Blues are looking at.

An agreement has already been reached between the Premier League club and Higuain, but they are looking to release him from his contract at AC Milan, where he is now on loan from Juventus.

According to Marca, Chelsea have contacted the 31-year-old about a switch to Stamford Bridge and he's accepted the terms over a move.
