Higuain passes Chelsea medical

Gonzalo Higuain is only official confirmation away from being a Chelsea player after passing his medical.

ANSA reports Higuain took his Chelsea medical without any problems on Wednesday morning and has already signed his contract.

It now remains to be seen whether the Blues were able to register the striker, who spent the first half of the season at Milan, in time for Thursday’s League Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur.

The 31-year-old should join Maurizio Sarri’s side on loan from Juventus until the end of the campaign, at which point his arrangement could be extended or made permanent.
