AC Milan chief Leonardo admits frustration with Chelsea target Higuain

AC Milan chief Leonardo admits frustration with Chelsea target Higuain”

"Chelsea have an agreement with Higuain to take him immediately", Gazzetta reported.

Higuain has spent the season on loan at Milan from Juventus, but Chelsea will apparently pay €40 million (£36m) and €8m a year in wages to land the Argentina forward.

Higuain's current sporting director has challenged his striker to improve at Milan, with a move to Stamford Bridge looking increasingly unlikely.

Chelsea are continuing their efforts to sign AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to reports from England.

Gonzalo Higuain has accepted an offer from Chelsea, where he will rejoin former boss Maurizio Sarri after previously working with the Italian at Napoli.

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

"But with all the rumours, there is no point in me thinking about these different situations until we have something to answer". Seeing as he is here, he needs to knuckle down and actually do something for this team.

The 26-yer-old Spaniard has struggled for form since his £65m arrival at Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in 2017.

Higuain was farmed out to Milan last summer after Cristiano Ronaldo's £100m move from Juventus and has scored six goals in 15 Serie A games this season.

Despite a strong start to the season, Chelsea have faded in the Premier League title race and Higuain could be the first of several new faces to join the club in the January transfer window.

If the Blues sign Higuain or Wilson, then current forward Alvaro Morata is expected to move back to Spain with Sevilla heavily interested in signing him.
