Former Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain fancies a move to Chelsea in a bid to reunite with his ex-manager Maurizio Sarri at the Stamford Bridge.

The Argentine attacker is on loan at AC Milan from Juventus and he is willing to ply his trade in the Premier League and with Chelsea.

Gonzalo played under Sarri when he left Real Madrid five seasons ago, and under the Italian manager, Higuain scored 36 goals in 35 league games.

The report in Corriere Dello Sport says the Argentine could move to the Stamford outfit with the club in dire need for a striker to replace misfiring Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud in the winter transfer.

With the player on loan at AC Milan till the end of the season from Juventus following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, it is still unclear how the deal will work out with AC Milan also having the option to sign Higuain at the end of the season for €36 million, Chelsea might look elsewhere for reinforcement.
