AC Milan chief Leonardo admits frustration with Chelsea target Higuain

AC Milan chief Leonardo admits frustration with Chelsea target Higuain

The London Evening Standard are reporting on Wednesday that Sarri has once again asked the Chelsea board to try and seal the signature of Higuain.

The Mirror are citing a report from Marca that claims Chelsea are now set to wrap-up a £36m [€40m] deal to sign Higuain after the striker agreed to the switch and will reportedly pen a contract worth around £140,000-a-week [€8m per year].

By contrast, Higuain netted 38 times in just 42 appearances for Napoli when managed by Sarri in the 2015-16 campaign.

Higuain joined Milan on a season-long loan from Juventus in July with an option to make the deal permanent, but he has struggled to settle at San Siro, scoring eight goals in all competitions.

The Argentina global set a new Serie A goal-scoring record under Sarri at the Stadio San Paolo in the 2015/16 campaign with 36 goals.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is a firm fan of Higuain and was keen to take him to Stamford Bridge in the summer, but the Argentine ultimately linked up with AC Milan on loan from Juventus.

Todd Bowles close to finding a home on new-look Buccaneers staff
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport , the Buccaneers are signing Arians to a four-year contract with a fifth-year option. Former Jets head coach Todd Bowles is the top candidate to join Arians' staff as defensive coordinator.

He scored 40 league goals in two seasons for them, but left for Milan in the last close season after Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival in Turin.

He previously spent six years at Real Madrid before starting his career at River Plate in Argentina.

Milan's sporting director Leonardo however warned on Tuesday he had to get down to work.

"But with all the rumours, there is no point in me thinking about these different situations until we have something to answer".

"We want to continue to take the club forward and the team forward, and to do that, we've got to keep our best player".
