Antonio Conte is reportedly confident that a deal can be struck this summer for Gonzalo Higuain to join him at Chelsea.
The incoming Blues boss is believed to be a big admirer of the Argentine frontman, who has scored 32 Serie A goals for Napoli this term – 16 more than any other player.
According to The Mirror, that form has caused Conte to conclude that Higuain is the ideal frontman to bolster Chelsea’s attacking ranks.
The report adds that the 28-year-old is likely to set the West Londoners back around £45m.
It is further thought that were Higuain to arrive at Stamford Bridge, it may pave the way for Diego Costa to move on, with his former club Atletico Madrid said to be keen on the Spaniard’s services.
