It is also suggested that the arrival of Higuain will see the door firmly opened for Alvaro Morata to depart.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to reunite with the Argentina worldwide, who scoring 37 times in the 2015-16 season for him at Napol.

"What I know is that Maurizio Sarri wants to be reunited with Gonzalo Higuain", Solhekol told Sky Sports News.

However, negotiations are complicated and the two parties (Chelsea and Juve) have different ideas: the Bianconeri wanting the Premier League side to basically accept the same terms as Milan - a loan with €36m obligation to buy.

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.

When asked about Chelsea's interest in Higuain, Leonardo said: "There's no point following rumours and gossip".

Drone sighting grounds planes at Heathrow Airport
Just before 6pm local-time, a spokesman for Heathrow Airport said they had stopped departures as a precautionary measure. One frustrated tweeter wrote prior to the re-opening: 'Stuck on the runway at Heathrow because of a drone sighting'.

The Argentine thrived under Sarri's guidance at Napoli and broke the Serie A record with 37 goals in the 2015/2016 season.

Father-figure Sarri will believe he is the man to get the player firing on full cylinders after his prolific spell in Naples saw him hit 71 goals in 104 appearances, and will believe a rejuvenated Higuain can fire Chelsea to a top-four finish in the table.

"He is here right now".

"We want to continue to take the club forward and the team forward, and to do that, we've got to keep our best player".

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri's first-choice preference to add firepower to his squad is thought to be Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is now on loan at AC Milan.
