Chelsea are readying a bid in excess of £34.5m for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, reports the Daily Star.

£34.5m was the price the Italian outfit paid for the striker's services this past summer, however Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is now ready to pay even more for the star in order to bring him to Stamford Bridge. 

The Blues have struggled in the forward department this season with the likes of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o proving inconsistent for the Premier League giants.

And now with Higuain impressing in Italy, Jose Mourinho is ready to make a move for the player he worked with at Real Madrid.

In the summer, it had been reported that Higuain would be heading to London as Arsenal were strong favourites to land the hitman. 

However it now appears that Chelsea will test Napoli's resolve as they prepare a bid for the striker.
