Chelsea are reportedly searching for a new goalscorer and they have identified two players — AC Milan’s Gonzalo Higuain and Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson.
Transfer media outlets claimed the Blues are on the verge of completing their move for the Argentinian striker after holding talks with his parent club Juventus for his services.
The Scuddeto Champions are ready to end their relationship with the player as there are many proven strikers to help them in their mission to win UEFA Champions League trophy this season.
Ronaldo, Dybala, Costa, Mandzukic are all doing well and they are capable of leading the Bianconeri to their first European glory after many years.
As for Callum Wilson, the West London outfits might need to break their transfer record for his signature.
According to Daily Star in the early hours of today, the Cherries are reluctant to let go of the Englishman in the January transfer market, hence, they’ve placed a huge price tag on his signature.
The British publication reveals that the struggling club are hoping to receive £75m from the Blues before considering whether to release him or not.
Irrespective of his qualities and his fine form this season, the 26-year-old didn’t look like a player who should carry such mammoth market value and the Blues might turn their attention to someone else’s signature.
The same report further suggests that Sarri and his employers won’t go beyond £50m offer for his signature.
Should the Cherries insist they want £75m for his signature, the Blues will ultimately end their desire to lure Wilson to Stamford Bridge this month.
Young goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga became the Blues most expensive player when he completed his £71m switch to Stamford Bridge from Athletic Bilbao in the summer.
