Chelsea are planning an astonishing swap deal that would bring Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are willing to offload misfit Alvaro Morata who had a less than ideal debut season at the Bridge, managing only 11 goals in the league.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea‘s soon-to-be boss Maurizio Sarri has identified Higuain as the man to lead the London club’s title challenge next season.
Higuain is valued at around £61 million and Chelsea would need to offer Morata plus substantial cash for the Italian side to even consider an exchange.
Morata excelled at Juventus for a couple of seasons, coming up with crucial goals in the Champions League and is keen on returning to Italy.
He was not a part of the Spanish World Cup squad that crashed out in the Round of 16 against Russia and will be looking to get his career back on track with a move away from the Premier League.
