AC Milan Boss Sends Warning To Gonzalo Higuain Amid Premier League

Gonzalo Higuain has endured a difficult spell on loan at Milan

Gonzalo Higuain has endured a difficult spell on loan at Milan

Chelsea are willing to spend £50m on Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson if their attempts to sign Gonzalo Higuain fail, according to a report on Sky Sports.

The striker was the lynchpin of Sarri's team during that campaign and the thought of the duo back together should frighten Premier League defences. In particular, the veteran striker became a fearsome force at Napoli, before he joined Juventus in the summer of 2016.

Higuain has spent the season on loan at Milan from Juventus, but Chelsea will apparently pay €40 million (£36m) and €8m a year in wages to land the Argentina forward.

What does the future hold for Higuain?

However, Chelsea could attempt to send the former Real Madrid star to AC Milan in order to get a deal for Higuain over the line.

Transport Minister Chris Grayling had been in contact with the airport concerning the drone sighting. Both airports responded to the Gatwick incident by ordering military-grade anti-drone technology.

The pair's woes have led boss Maurizio Sarri to experiment with his frontline and play Eden Hazard as a false nine. Alvaro Morata was initially believed to be part of the discussions, but the Spaniard looks set for a return to his homeland instead.

However, negotiations are complicated and the two parties (Chelsea and Juve) have different ideas: the Bianconeri wanting the Premier League side to basically accept the same terms as Milan - a loan with €36m obligation to buy.

Juventus & AC Milan would have to agree on the deal before Higuain can get his wish of moving to Stamford Bridge but the transfer would be a significant coup for the Blues, who have lacked a ruthless streak in recent weeks.

Additionally, a £32 million price tag has Chelsea hesitant as well, although they have now inched closer to signing Higuain. But, it remains to be seen if Chelsea are able to land the 31-year-old this month, or if he ends up staying put at San Siro instead.
