Reports have claimed Chelsea have made contact with Napoli over the possible signing of Gonzalo Higuain
The Premier League giants have been alerted to the player’s availability after Barcelona made a preliminary move for the striker.
It has led Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis to try and negotiate a new buy-out clause to be inserted into the 26-year-old’s contract.
However, the Daily Star website claim Jose Mourinho’s side have already made contact with Higuain’s agent and are carrying on with talks over potential rival deals.
The Portuguese boss is looking for a partner for incoming Diego Costa, and he knows all about Higuain from his time at Madrid.
