Gonzalo Higuain has no intention of leaving Napoli

Following Chelsea's poor start to the Premier League season, it seems like they have been linked with every player under the sun.

One of those names is Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain. The Argentine international has enjoyed a stellar campaign so far, scoring 9 goals in 11 Serie A matches and the Stamford Bridge club's lack of firepower has increased their need for something new. 

However, disappointingly for the Blues, Higuain's agent - who is also his brother - has claimed he will not be looking for a move away from the Stadio San Paolo unless president Aurelio de Laurentiis' €100million (£70m) valuation is matched.

In an interview with website TuttoNapoli, brought to our attention by the Daily Mail, Nicolas Higuain said: "We're doing really well with Napoli,' he told 'I've been in Argentina for five months, I'm not travelling around the world trying to sell my brother.

"If tomorrow a club arrived and found an agreement with De Laurentiis, it would be another matter and we would talk with him about it, but from our part that intention isn't there. We aren't planning a future elsewhere."


In reality, £70m for Higuain is nothing short of ridiculous. There are a number of different forwards Chelsea could bring to west London for a much cheaper price.

Although, De Laurentiis' valuation was probably aimed at scaring off potential suitors for their top goalscorer.

But the truth still remains, Chelsea desperately need something new going forward. Radamel Falcao has flopped while Diego Costa has been unable to repeat his goalscoring feats of last season.
