Revealed! Chelsea’s choice for striker next season


Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has revealed that Chelsea are chasing after the signature of Napoli striker, Gonzalo Higuan.

The forward has been on the radar of the Blues for sometime now but know they cannot have both him and Diego Costa at the same time in their ranks.

With Atletico Madrid still in pursuit of their former star man, Chelsea could be tempted to move for the Argentina international, and allow Costa to switch back to the La Liga.

Balague told Sky Sports: “Gonzalo Higuain is a target for Chelsea. I think he would cost around £37.8m

“Higuain is seriously considering it and if he does move to Stamford Bridge then there would be the possibility that Costa would have to be sold.

“It’s very difficult for Atletico Madrid, and Diego Simeone in particular.


“Simeone has told Atletico Madrid he only wants three players. Diego, Costa and Diego Costa.

“He’s determined to get him but it’s not easy to get him as he will have to reduce his wages big time and I’m not sure Atletico will be able to put a huge offer on the table for him.

“It’s one to keep an eye in the future because they certainly want him.”
