Chelsea are willing to spend £50m on Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson if their attempts to sign Gonzalo Higuain fail, according to a report on Sky Sports.

Alvaro Morata has failed to impress and wants a return to Spain, with Sevilla and Atletico Madrid among the clubs interested in him.

If Sarri is unable to convince Chelsea over Higuain, the Italian will turn his attention to Wilson, who has scored 10 goals in 23 matches in all competitions for Bournemouth this season.

England worldwide Wilson has found the back of the net nine times in the Premier League this season and has registered five assists.

Higuain is on-loan at AC Milan from Juventus, which makes the deal a hard one to negotiate, especially in January.

"He has to make a decision and take on his share of the responsibility", said Leo.

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri's first-choice preference to add firepower to his squad is thought to be Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is now on loan at AC Milan.

"He had a tough moment, he has to put it behind him and get to work".

Sarri has shuffled his pack around due to the injuries to Giroud and Morata by playing Eden Hazard as the striker in recent games.

Higuain joined the Rossoneri with a view to a permanent £32million switch at the end of the season, but Chelsea would be reluctant to spend so much on a player who is already in his thirties.

The 26-yer-old Spaniard has struggled for form since his £65m arrival at Stamford Bridge from Real Madrid in 2017.
