Chelsea are keen on signing Gonzalo Higuain from AC Milan in a swap deal with Alvaro Morata, according to Sky in Italy.
It is understood Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has huge respect for Higuain, who he worked with at Napoli and was interested in bringing to Chelsea in the summer.
Morata is keen to return to Italy having previously spent two years with Juventus where he won two Serie A titles and two Coppa Italias.
However, the deal would be complicated by the fact Higuain is on loan at AC Milan from Juventus.
Higuain scored 36 league goals in the one season he worked with Sarri before leaving the San Paolo to join Juventus.
