  • Higuain told to decide future and show AC Milan responsibility

The 31-year-old Argentina global reportedly wants to join his former Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri at the English club, who would take over Milan's option to eventually make the deal permanent.

Sarri will hope to get the best out of Higuain, whose form in Naples saw him land a move to Juventus in a mouthwatering £77.9m move three years ago.

AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain has "agreed to terms" and is set to move to Premier League club Chelsea, Italian sports daily Gazzetta Dello Sport reported on Wednesday.

He scored 40 league goals in two seasons for Juve, but left for Milan last summer after Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival in Turin from Real Madrid.

Giroud has only started six of Chelsea's 21 Premier League games this season, with Alvaro Morata leading the line for the Blues in 11 matches, but with the Spaniard likely to be out injured and potentially leaving the Bridge in the coming months after a torrid campaign then it's time for Sarri to put his faith in Giroud.

Higuain is now on loan at AC Milan and any deal would require them to terminate his deal early - however, it contains an obligation to buy the striker in the summer for £32m.

However, Milan sporting director Leonardo said on Tuesday that Higuain had to "get down to work".

Chelsea could reportedly shift their focus towards signing Callum Wilson from Bournemouth, should they fail to acquire the services of Juventus' Gonzalo Higuain.

"A goal can change things, but if he is to continue here, he needs to take on responsibility".

The 32-year-old French World Cup victor may have only scored one goal in the league (against Tottenham Hotspur), but his ability to dovetail with Eden Hazard in attack can be the catalyst for Chelsea rocketing through the second half of the season.
