We are just eight days from now until the transfer window get shut and while some clubs have made decent signings this summer, Chelsea are still one of the top six clubs lacking behind this window.
According to reports today, €55m-rated Gonzalo Higuain, who had severally been linked with a move to Chelsea have reportedly arrived Milan to undergo his medicals with AC Milan, leaving Chelsea with another major blow.
The Argentina international has been on the radar of Chelsea since the opening of the transfer window and his desire to leave the Old Lady became heightened when they signed on Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.

The signing of the Portuguese legend would not doubt see Higuain’s playing time at San Siro reduced and he’s in line to join AC Milan on a season long loan deal after a £16million deal have been agreed. It’s also added in the report that the San Siro outfit will have an option to make his deal a permanent one next season in a £32.1m deal as part of the deal.
While arriving Milan this morning, the Argentine striker expressed his delight to AC Milan fans and said he’s here to have his medicals today.
“It’s great to see so many fans, but I also want to send greetings to those of Juventus who have given me so much affection.
“[On Thursday] I’ll do the visit (medical) and then I hope to sign… We hope to go as far as possible.”
Higuain, in his two seasons with Juventus, have registered a total 105 appearances, and scoring 55 goals across all competitions.
