West Ham are reportedly trying to sign former Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Stamford Bridge.
Higuain returned to Turin where he has two more years on his Juventus contract after failing to secure a permanent Chelsea contract.
According to Sky Sport Italia via Daily Mail, West Ham have proposed a season-long loan deal to sign Higuain from Juventus. The move will offer Higuain another chance to shine in the Premier League.
The report also added that Higuain’s parent club Juventus would prefer to sell the striker outright and are said to value him at around £40million. West Ham’s loan offer would likely include an option to buy.
West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini is keen on signing Higuain after West Ham’s top scorer for last season, Marko Arnautovic joined Chinese club Shanghai SIPG on Monday.
