Juventus striker, Gonzalo Higuain, has accepted a loan switch to AC Milan, according to Sky in Italy.

Chelsea were interested in the Argentina international, but he looks set to remain in Serie A for the foreseeable future.

Higuain was the subject of talks between his brother and agent, Nicolas and new Milan director of football, Leonardo, who both arrived at Casa Milan on Monday evening.

Milan will pay out €18million for a loan move, with an option to buy at the deal’s conclusion for another €36m.

It now means Chelsea will likely step up their rumoured interest in Robert Lewandowski.
