ONE HORSE RACE

The Argentinian has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge

Chelsea are the only club interested in signing Juventus front man Gonzalo Higuain, according to reports in Italy.

The Italian champions are prepared to sell the Argentina international this summer following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and have set a price tag of around £50m.

The 30-year-old’s place in the Juve team is also under threat now Ronaldo has joined the team and he is ready to leave as a result.

It was expected there would be plenty of suitors for Higuain, who has scored over 50 goals during two years in Turin.

But, according to Sky Italia, Chelsea are the only club who have expressed an interest in the striker.


The Blues are keen on landing Higuain as their incoming boss, Maurizio Sarri, wants to work with him again after the pair teamed up at Napoli.

Chelsea now appear to have a clear run at Higuain, but as of yet they have not made a formal offer.
