Incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has asked the London club’s bosses to pursue the signing of Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain.
Chelsea are seemingly in need of a striker for next season due to their top forward, Diego Costa only netting 11 times in 27 games this season.
The Daily Mail reports that Higuain is willing to join Chelsea despite their lack of Champions League football next season, the only thing he requires is regular first team action. However, the report also suggests that Higuain would be slightly reluctant to join the club if Diego Costa was to remain a Chelsea player.
Higuain is said to be worth around £42m.
