Chelsea leading Higuain chase

Gonzalo Higuain news

Conte wants Higuain

Future Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is seemingly confident of luring Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain to Stamford Bridge this summer. The Argentine has been a consistent performer for the Naples outfit since his move from Real Madrid in 2013.

The Mirror says the Blues have earmarked Higuain as their top priority for the summer following a request from Antonio Conte.

Adding to this, Higuain would be open to a move to the Premier League after he stalled on talks over a contract extension at the Serie A outfit.

Reports elsewhere reveal that Higuain's arrival at the Blues could well pave way for Diego Costa to join a Chinese Super League side.

London rivals Arsenal are also hot on the trail of the South American marksman.
