Chelsea have revived their interest in Gonzalo Higuain ahead of the January window.

The Argentine was a target for Maurizio Sarri last summer and Chelsea held initial talks with his then club Juventus.

However, negotiations failed to develop and the striker moved to AC Milan on a £16million season loan with an option to buy as part of a swap deal involving Leonardo Bonucci.

Higuain started off the season well with seven goals in 10 games but has become increasingly frustrated with his side's indifferent form which has seen them fall 19 points behind leaders Juventus.
