Juventus and AC Milan will hold talks over Gonzalo Higuain’s desire to join Chelsea in the Premier League over the next few days.
The Argentina striker has made it clear to AC Milan, where he is currently on loan from Juventus, that he wants to leave for Chelsea.
Both clubs have travelled to Saudi Arabia where they will play each other on Wednesday in the Italian Super Cup.
AC Milan are already looking for alternative forwards to take his spot in the squad and are considering a move for Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek.
Chelsea’s struggling forward Alvaro Morata had been suggested as some part of loan swap deal, but the Spain international prefers a return to La Liga at this stage.
After meeting his agent last week, Sevilla are looking elsewhere because the 26-year-old is too costly, but Atletico Madrid and Barcelona continue to be linked.
He won’t go anywhere though until Chelsea bring someone in. Juventus have rejected the Blues’ bid so far to sign Higuain on loan for the rest of the season or for 18 months.
