Gonzalo Higuain is open to a move to Chelsea FC this month, according to reports in the Spanish media.

If the Blues sign Higuain or Wilson, then current forward Alvaro Morata is expected to move back to Spain with Sevilla heavily interested in signing him.

England worldwide Wilson has found the back of the net nine times in the Premier League this season and has registered five assists.

However, the deal remains complicated with AC Milan remaining reluctant to terminate their existing loan contract with the Argentine and this could shift the Blues' interest elsewhere.

He said: "A goal can change things, but if he is to continue here, he needs to take on responsibility".

Manager Maurizio Sarri previously worked with him at Napoli and fans can expect fireworks at Stamford Bridge if the pair are reunited.

"He had a tough moment, he has to put it behind him and get to work".

And with the San Siro outfit apprehensive to go ahead with the proposed £36.1million purchase at the end of the season, it's claimed the Argentine has agreed to join Chelsea who it's thought are willing to meet both Juve and the player's money demands.

His age aside, his wage demands aside, the difficulty of negotiating with two teams aside, Higuain scores goals, and Chelsea need goals.

A World Cup runner-up in 2014, he is also a prolific victor of trophies having claimed three Liga titles with Real Madrid and two Serie A victories at Juventus amid a plethora of cup successes at Madrid, Napoli and Juve.

Real Madrid is not a bad step, so hopefully he can take the minutes he wants and that he didn't want here for many reasons. Asked about Diaz's departure, Guardiola said: "Like I said many times, I don't want people that don't want to stay here".
