Premier League side, Chelsea, are hoping to complete the signing of Argentine star, Gonzalo Higuain, ahead of next week transfer deadline.

According to a UK Metro report, Higuian is keen on signing the contract in time so he can feature in Chelsea's Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Spurs on Thursday, January 24.

His deal with the London outfit will reportedly include an option of buying the striker permanently in the summer.

The 31-year-old's arrival at Stamford Bridge is expected to solve Chelsea's attack-line woes, with Alvaro Morata expected to join Atletico Madrid.

Should Morata's deal see the light of day, he will effectively end his 18-month miserable stint with the Blues.

Meanwhile, Higuain's move to Chelsea will see him have a reunion with Sarri, with whom he worked under at Napoli.
