Malaga are attempting to lure Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain from under the noses of Chelsea with a huge wage offer.


The Argentine has had limited playing time this season under Jose Mourinho and the Stamford Bridge club were reportedly ready to offer huge sums to recruit the prolific forward.


It now looks as though the Blues will have a fight on their hands from nouveau-riche La Liga side Malaga, who will attempt to convince Higuain with a contract offer that will double his current contract, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.


Malaga have already signed a number of big name stars, such as Santi Cazorla, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Joris Mathijsen and Jeremy Toulalan.


Chelsea are reportedly ready to overhaul their squad in the summer, especially in attack where Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou and Florent Malouda are all coming to the end of their contracts.


The report claims that Malaga will only make the move if they manage to qualify for next year’s Champions League – they are currently in fourth and so would go into qualifying for the 2012-13 competition.
