Chelsea have £88m striker bid rejected

Juventus highest paid player Gonzalo Higuain

Chelsea have apparently offered a whopping £88 million for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain

The Blues are said to be trying to make up for missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United and are keen to get Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.

Tuttosport are claiming that Conte is unhappy with Chelsea’s hierarchy over their failure to land Lukaku ahead of Jose Mourinho’s side, who completed a £75m deal for the Belgian on Monday.

Now according to reports, Chelsea have also been unsuccessful with a £88m offer for Juventus forward Gonzalo Higuain, which has been rejected by the Serie A champions.

In his first season in Turin, the Argentina international scored 32 goals in 55 games, helping the club win Serie A, the Coppa Italia and reach the final of the Champions League where they were beaten by Real Madrid.
