Maurizio Sarri is still asking Chelsea to sign Gonzalo Higuain, currently on loan from Juventus to Milan, with Alvaro Morata going the other way.
According to Sky Sport Italia this evening, Chelsea have not entirely given up on their summer attempts to reunite Higuain with his old Napoli Coach Sarri.
The Stamford Bridge side would be prepared to take Pipita on loan with an option to buy.
The Argentine only just turned 31 this month and is finding it difficult at Milan, moving on loan for €18m with option to buy for €36m.
Milan’s troubles with UEFA and Financial Fair Play limitations also mean they could send Higuain back to Juve earlier rather than later.
It could resolve two issues, as Sarri would have a striker who already knows and is suited to his style of football, while Morata would end his Premier League nightmare and return to Serie A.
Both Juventus and Milan have approached Morata, so it remains to be seen where he would go.
