Chelsea are eyeing up a January move for AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to reports.
The Blues were interested in signing the Argentine during the summer, but talks with his then club Juventus broke down.
Instead, Higuain moved to Milan on a £16million season loan with an option to buy as part of a swap deal involving Leonardo Bonucci.
But Higuain has become frustrated at the San Siro, according to the Daily Mail, with his side currently languishing 19 points behind Serie A leaders Juventus.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to sign a striker in January due to the indifferent form of Alvaro Morata and enjoyed great success with Higuian during their time together at Napoli.
