Chelsea Closing In On Gonzalo Higuain

Eddie Howe open to more arrivals at Bournemouth

Any deal for Higuain is further complicated by the striker's season-long loan at AC Milan from parent club Juventus.

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

When asked about Chelsea's interest in Higuain, Leonardo said: "There's no point following rumours and gossip".

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 knuckle down and actually do something for this team.

But Sky in Italy are reporting that Chelsea's chief-executive Marina Granovskaia is reluctant to slash out on Higuain as she's unconvinced he'll solve Chelsea's scoring problems.

Vardy, who has retired from worldwide football, is also far from an ideal fit for "Sarri-ball", with his game more reliant on counter-attacking into space than fox-in-the-box goal poaching.

According to Marca, Higuain's transfer to Chelsea will be approved in the coming days with Alvaro Morata set to leave the club as the Argentine comes in.

"But I don't want to talk about him". However, this season Higuain hasn't been quite so productive in front of goal and he has struggled to win over the AC Milan fans.

Bournemouth's Wilson was confirmed to be an interest of Chelsea a year ago when assistant manager Gianfranco Zola spoke about him in a news conference.

"I am very happy to be trained by him, I was very well received".
