AC MILAN manager Gennaro Gattuso has admitted talks are ongoing with Gonzalo Higuain’s representatives amid speculation over a move to Chelsea.

Chelsea are keen to sign a striker in the January transfer window with manager Maurizio Sarri exasperated with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud's struggles in front of goal.

Sarri is well aware of Higuain’s quality having managed him for a season at Napoli, with the striker scoring 36 goals in 35 Serie A appearances.

Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic have also been linked with Chelsea.
