However, it seems any move for the Argentina worldwide will be hard to achieve, with Higuain's brother and agent insisting that the reports of an agreement between Juve and Chelsea were false.

However, Juventus are prepared to sell the striker this summer alongside Daniele Rugani in order to fund their massive ambition to take Ronaldo to Turin in the coming weeks.

John Obi Mikel explains why he believes that as long as Roman Abramovich is in charge of Chelsea, fans shouldn't be concerned for the club's future.

If Chelsea do hire Sarri, then signing Higuain would be a masterstroke.

Now the striker's agent and his brother Nicolas has brushed off rumours of a move to Chelsea by stating that Higuain has no intentions of leaving Juventus and no concrete offers have arrived for his client.

The same article states that the Juventus forward will command a transfer fee in the region of €60m (£53m) to bolster Chelsea FC's attacking options ahead of Maurizio Sarri's anticipated appointment.

At the moment we haven't spoken to any other clubs, as we have a three-year contract with Juventus.

Morata who was loaned to Juventus by Real Madrid for two seasons, enjoyed a fantastic season with the Italian giants before he returned to Real Madrid. He is very happy in the city, at the club, with the coach and the tactical system.

Speaking to Sky Italy, Nicolas said: "We are not in talks with Chelsea".

According to the same story, Chelsea FC still have some work to do to complete a deal to make Sarri their next manager following a hard season under his compatriot Antonio Conte.
