Done deal: Chelsea secure first January signing of 36-goal star, medical imminent

Chelsea have reached agreement for the signing of Argentina forward Gonzalo Higuain, this report is according to Marca.

Chelsea are in the market to sign a striker and they have been heavily linked with a move for Higuain.

Maurizio Sarri is displeased with the goal scoring prowess of his striker, leaving with no choice than to deploy Eden Hazard as a false nine.

If the Blues must seal a place in the first quartet of the Premier League log, they must sign a striker that will offer them goals not mere threats.

Sarri is very well familiar with Higuain during his time at Napoli, where the striker scored 36 league goals in 35 appearances and a reunion appear to be in the offing.

According to the report, Higuain has said yes to a Chelsea and the deal will be completed in hours.

Higuain is currently on a loan spell at AC Milan from Juventus, but it appears that both clubs have agreed to allow him join Chelsea.

The arrival of Higuain could signal the end of the spell of Alvaro Morata, who has been heavily linked with a move to Sevilla.

Higuain would be a quick fix for Sarri, who is expected to sign a more assured striker at the end of the season.
