Gonzalo Higuain has reportedly requested a January move to join Chelsea, according to reports in Italy.
Sportmediaset claims that the striker himself is keen to join Maurizio Sarri in London, with Juventus also giving the move the green light.
The Argentinian striker has flattered to deceive on loan at AC Milan, where he has scored just five Serie A goals in 14 games.
Higuain banged in 38 goals in 42 matches under the tutelage of Sarri in their only season together at Napoli, before he jumped ship to sign for the Old Lady.
And the Italian news outlet also claims that Juve have given the World Cup runner-up the green light for the deal to go ahead.
The report further states that Milan are happy for Higuain’s loan spell to be cut short after failing to impress at the San Siro.
Milan have the option to buy the striker but are now unlikely to complete the deal, meaning Juventus may need to look elsewhere to find a potential buyer.
