According to reports in Italy, Gonzalo Higuain has agreed to join Chelsea this summer.

Calcio Mercato reports that the striker has accepted that he will leave Juventus following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.

The report claims that the striker has informed his brother Nicolas, who is also his agent, that he is ready to accept a move to Chelsea subject to agreeing personal terms.

A deal is far from complete with Higuain keen to ensure his deal would match that of his Juventus contract.

The Old Lady are reportedly asking for €55 million for the striker this summer, with Chelsea the only club believed to be in the running.

The forward worked with Maurizio Sarri, who is expected to take over at Stamford Bridge imminently, at Napoli and the pair have a strong relationship.

Should Higuain join Chelsea this summer, his arrival is likely to cast an end to Alvaro Morata’s time at the club with a move back to Italy looking likely.

Meanwhile, at the other end, Barcelona have reportedly lodged a second bid for Chelsea winger, Willian.

According to Sky Sports News, the Blues have received an offer in the region of £53 million for the Brazilian.

The Catalan giants are keen to sign the player and reportedly had an opening bid rejected this summer.

Reports have suggested Chelsea would be willing to sell if they received a bid closer to £60 million.

But rumors suggest that Maurizio Sarri would like to keep the player at the club next season.

The Brazilian had seen his future thrown into doubt after falling out of favour with Antonio Conte, who was recently been sacked by the club.

Willian will turn 30 in August and this may be Chelsea’s best chance to cash in on the Brazilian international, who is said to be open to the idea of joining Barcelona this summer.
