English Premier League champions, Chelsea are desperate for a big name up front and having missed out on their prime target in Romelu Lukaku, the Blues have reportedly turned their searchlights to Itlay. 

According to reports from Italy, Chelsea have tabled an audacious £88million bid for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.

As reported by Tuttosport, Antonio Conte looks determined to bag the former Napoli striker, who only moved to Turin last summer.

Surprisingly, Juve have just sold Leonardo Bonucci to Serie A rivals AC Milan for £35m after the Italy international reportedly fell out with Max Allegri.

But that might stop Juve weakening their squad any further, with the Champions League finalists yet to sign anyone this summer.

It is been seen that an £88m bid surely shows Blues sporting director Michael Emenalo means business.

Tuttosport claim that Chelsea made an approach for Higuain 10 days ago.
