Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with Napoli to sign super-striker Gonzalo Higuain but the Serie A giant is demanding as much as £65million.

The 28-year-old forward ended Seria A’s 2015 / 2016 season as the top scorer with a total 36 goals in 35 appearances.
Chelsea officials, according to report, contacted Maurizio Sarri’s side last week to open discussions on Gonzalo Higuain‘s transfer.
As a compensation for the Blues who won’t be playing at next season’s Champions League, new coach Antonio Conte is determined to lure a world class striker to Stamford Bridge. A super-striker in Higuain‘s form would be a good first signing.

Chelsea looks set for action in the coming season as the team prepare for a fearless challenge. Initial estimations on Gonzalo Higuain’s signing was put at £45m but Roman Abramovich has been informed that the former Real Madrid star is worth more.
Good news for Chelsea fans, coach Antonio Conte got an approval from Roman Abramovich that there’s no limit on his budget this summer.
