AC Milan chief Leonardo admits frustration with Chelsea target Higuain

AC Milan chief Leonardo admits frustration with Chelsea target Higuain

Higuain was close to joining the Blues last summer, but ultimately went to AC Milan on loan from Juventus.

AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain has "agreed terms" and is set for an imminent move to Premier League club Chelsea, Italian sports daily Gazzetta Dello Sport reported on Wednesday (Jan 9).

The Argentina worldwide has been linked with a move in the January transfer window, with Chelsea reportedly keen.

Higuain had his most successful season under Sarri, breaking the Serie A goalscoring record with 36 goals in the 2015/16 campaign.

"Gonzalo has lived through this moment but now he has to leave it behind him".

Higuain's current sporting director has challenged his striker to improve at Milan, with a move to Stamford Bridge looking increasingly unlikely.

All of this, however, was spectacularly upstaged by an unlikely photobomber, initially known only as the Fiji Water Girl . Pictures of the model quickly went viral, with a host of memes and even a spoof Twitter account appearing within hours.

He has netted eight times in 20 appearances in all competitions so far this campaign, with the club's sporting director Leonardo warning the striker to step his game while he is still playing at the San Siro.

However, the interest in Vardy is rather curious given that he will turn 32 in just a few days and Chelsea are reluctant to sign players over the age of 30 - something that has created a stumbling block in any deal for Higuain. Seeing as he is here, he needs to get down and actually do something for this team.

He said: "A goal can change things, but if he is to continue here, he needs to take on responsibility".

Last month, Chelsea's assistant manager Gianfranco Zola confirmed the club's interest in Wilson, forcing Cherries' boss Eddie Howe to insist he is not for sale.

Higuain's arrival could also pave the way for Alvaro Morata's exit at Stamford Bridge.
