Chelsea Transfer Rumours: Higuain in, Morata out?

Transfer rumours abound at Stamford Bridge with many pundits expecting Higuain to join the Blues and Morata to move to Sevilla

AC Milan loanee Gonzalo Higuain is odds-on at 2/9 to sign for Chelsea this month, leading bookmaker Betway going 2/9 that this proves to be the case with Alvaro Morata likely to move away from Stamford Bridge with a possible joining-up with La Liga side Sevilla. Morata is 5/6 to depart the Premier League outfit although he is priced at Evens to stay put for the time being.

Chelsea have been lacking somewhat on the goal-scoring front of late, as demonstrated by their hugely disappointing 1-0 League Cup defeat to city rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday evening. The Blues were unable to find a way past a solid Spurs rearguard and it would certainly help Chelsea’s cause were they able to grab the signature of Argentinian Higuain who is turning out for AC Milan whilst on loan from Serie A leaders Juventus at the moment. Higuain was at his best when playing under Maurizio Sarri at Napoli and a reunion is a real possibility.

Moving away from Stamford Bridge could be Alvaro Morata who has largely disappointed this term. Indeed he wasn’t particularly impressive last season either and it is looking increasingly likely that he will move to a Sevilla side which are flying high in La Liga right now.
