Chelsea row 'puts Gonzalo Higuain deal in doubt'

Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser have been struggling with injury

Chelsea's hopes of signing Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain during the January transfer window could reportedly be scuppered by a row between manager Maurizio Sarri and director Marina Granovskaia.

Higuain joined Milan on a season-long loan from Juventus in July with an option to make the deal permanent, but he has struggled to settle at San Siro, scoring eight goals in all competitions.

Meanwhile, SunSport quoting Marca reports that the former Real Madrid forward has agreed terms with west London club, adding that his move could be finalised today.

Higuain sent out on loan to AC Milan last August after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and the Argentine has been unable to find his footing at the club.

However, the deal remains complicated with AC Milan remaining reluctant to terminate their existing loan contract with the Argentine and this could shift the Blues' interest elsewhere.

Cup holders Chelsea and record 13-time winners Arsenal were among the other Premier League teams to progress to the last 32. He stayed behind in Manchester for treatment and will join up with the group in Dubai later this week.

"He had a tough moment, he has to put it behind him and get to work", said Leonardo.

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri's first-choice preference to add firepower to his squad is thought to be Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is now on loan at AC Milan.

Chelsea, for their part, are in need of a striker after deploying Eden Hazard as a false nine for a large chunk of the season.

Higuain is now on loan to AC Milan from Juventus, but the Rossoneri are reportedly ready and willing to let the 31-year-old end his spell early as they are struggling to pay his hefty wages.
