BREAKING: Higuain could complete Chelsea transfer in hours after agreeing terms

Gonzalo Higuain could become a Chelsea player today with Morata set for Sevilla loan.

Marca now claim Higuain, on loan at AC Milan from Juventus, has agreed terms with the Blues and his move could be finalised today.

Higuain, 31, broke the Serie A goalscoring record under Sarri in Naples with 36 goals in the 2015/16 campaign. He scored 71 league goals in 94 matches during his three years at the club before earning a massive £75m move to Juventus in 2016.

Higuain’s arrival could see Morata, 26, loaned out to Sevilla for the rest of the season. The Spanish striker, who picked up a hamstring injury in last night’s 1-0 Carabao Cup semi-final defeat to Tottenham, has scored just five Premier League goals this term.
