Double deal for Higuain and Paredes close, Morata set to leave

ALVARO MORATA'S Chelsea exit is reportedly "in the balance" with Atletico Madrid only willing to sign him on loan.

The same story concludes that Chelsea FC boss Maurizio Sarri is likely to be "delighted" by the deal, given that the Italian is a keen admirer of the striker and worked with him at Napoli.

Genoa CEO Giorgio Perinetti has indicated that the club are expecting to meet AC Milan soon to discuss a possible transfer for West Ham target Krzysztof Piatek.

Whoever signs James later in the month, the Colombian will only spend the rest of the season in England except they negotiate a permanent deal with Madrid before the start of 2019-20 season campaign.

The Argentina striker enjoyed some of the best football of his career under Sarri.

"If you are looking for troubles, you won't find them with me", Higuain told Italian media who met him on his arrival at Milan's Malpensa airport.

Sky Sports also claim that Chelsea will make room for Higuain by selling Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid.

West Ham know Bournemouth value Wilson highly and, while the 26-year-old England worldwide has been in good form, there are reservations about paying over £40m for a player who has had serious knee injuries.

"He won't have any time to adapt either as he needs to hit the ground running as Chelsea need someone to play as their focal point".

Morata has struggled to perform for the Blues since his big-money move from Real Madrid and has wasted several glorious opportunities during games.

Chelsea, on the other hand, remain in the market for a new striker.

Higuain is surely an upgrade on Morata - and arguably Olivier Giroud, too - and Merson could end up rather red-faced come the end of the season.
