The announcement of Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain is long overdue as an announcement is expected to have been made with reports claiming that an agreement has been reached with the player and the club.
The West London side have made Gonzalo Higuain a top priority so as to solve their problem of lack of cutting edge in the attack as they have been set aback with the blunt striking force comprising of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.
However, with the deal still being delayed, Italian Serie A champions Juventus said an agreement must be reached to demand a future fee of £32 million before the player can be released.
It is understood that Gonzalo Higuain’s agent was in London to finalize the move on Thursday but will still be kept bound by the demands of the Italian Serie A outfit.
With Gonzalo Higuain currently having a loan spell at the Serie A outfit AC Milan, there would be a need for Juventus to terminate the spell but will be sure that a £32 million fee would be paid by the West Londoners in the coming summer window.
However, the stand of the Blues side is yet to be known as they are desperate to land the star striker.
