Gonzalo Higuain

West London giants West Ham have made a loan bid to sign Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain this summer.

This is according to Sky Sports News which revealed that ex-Argentine international Higuain could return to the Premier League this summer after his unsuccessful spell at Chelsea earlier this year.

Gonzalo Higuain spent the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea.

He scored five goals in 16 games in all competitions for the Blues during his loan spell at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea had the option of signing him permanently for £36m after his short-term loan but the West Londoners decided against that option.

During his stay at Chelsea, Higuain helped the club to win the Europa League title via the win over London rivals Arsenal in the finals of the competition.

Gonzalo Higuain is back at Juventus who are keen to send him out either on loan or on a permanent deal.

The Argentine striker joined Juventus for a then club-record fee of £75m from Napoli in 2016 and he became surplus to requirements after the Italians signed Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid last summer.
