Report: Chelsea In Talks For Swap Deal For Juventus Star

Chelsea recently confirmed their first signing for the 2018-2019 season, but the Blues have reportedly opened talks with Juventus over a swap deal for their star forward.

Maurizio Sarri was unveiled as Chelsea's new manager on Saturday, and Jorginho was confirmed as his first signing a few hours later.

One of the biggest names on Sarri' wish-list is Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain, who is one of the top earners in Serie A.

According to the Daily Mail, the Blues have opened talks with Juve over swap deal that sees Higuain join the Premier League while Alvaro Morata moves to the Old Lady.

It is believed that the Blues are happy with allowing Morata, their club-record signing, to leave but only if they can somehow recoup most of the £65 million they paid for him last season.

Morata was reportedly pictured in Italy earlier this year with his agent holding talks with Juve and AC Milan.
