Chelsea are considering a move for Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain, who is refusing to pen a new deal with Napoli.
New Blues boss Antonio Conte has just completed a reported £33million deal for Belgium international Michy Batshuayi, but he continues to be linked with more strikers.
Southampton striker Graziano Pelle is said to be on his radar, and now reports in Italy claim that Higuain could also be an option as he considers his future in Naples.
Higuain’s brother and agent has said the striker has no intention of signing a new deal, meaning the Serie A club run the risk of losing him for nothing unless they cash in.
The former Real Madrid star has a mammoth release clause in his contract and some reports claim that Chelsea are considering activating it this summer.
Much could depend on the future of Chelsea striker Diego Costa, with the latest reports claiming he is happy with the appointment of Conte and is keen to stay at Stamford Bridge.
