Chelsea are in the market for a new striker this season, as the Blues are seeking a top forward to replace Diego Costa at Stamford Bridge.

With the Blues failing to capture Romelu Lukaku from Everton, reports from Italy claim Chelsea placed a sudden bid of £88 million for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Since the loss of Lukaku to Everton, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Andrea Belotti and Alvaro Morata have been the three names linked to occupy Costa’s position in Chelsea.

However, Tuttosport claim Chelsea submitted a bid 10 days ago for the Argentinian striker, with the bid being rejected immediately by Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta.

Chelsea fans have reacted to the rumour by claiming they don’t need such a deal at Stamford Bridge and one fan even admitted that he’d rather burn the money than spend it on Higuain.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
