Gonzalo Higuain

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is not keen to leave the club this summer according to Sky Sports Italia.

Higuain has been transfer-listed by the Italian champions on the back of his return from an unsuccessful loan spell at Chelsea.

The 31-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea.

He didn’t have the best of times at Chelsea after netting five goals in 14 appearances for the Blues in all competitions.

Gonzalo Higuain was part of the Chelsea squad that won the Europa League last season.

The ex-Argentine international was an unused substitute as Chelsea beat Arsenal 4-1 to win the trophy.

Higuain is surplus to requirements on his return to Juventus but he’s keen to prove himself under newly appointed Old Lady Maurizio Sarri.

He played under Sarri during his best season in Europe while he was playing for Napoli.

Gonzalo Higuain scored 36 goals in the league during the 2015/16 season to set a new record while Sarri was in charge.

Sarri masterminded his loan move to Chelsea during the winter transfer window in January.

Higuain had to cut his season-long loan spell at AC Milan short to join Chelsea who could have made his move permanent for just £36m.
