The Argentina international has been instrumental in Napoli's title bid in Serie A and the Blues see him as the man to fire the club back to the top of the Premier League
Chelsea will launch a summer bid for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain this summer, with Diego Costa set to leave the club, according to Fichajes.net.
The Argentina international has been instrumental in the Partenopei's title bid in Serie A this season having scored 24 goals in 25 league appearances.
And the Stamford Bridge outfit see him as the perfect replacement for Costa, who is reportedly a target of former club Atletico Madrid.
The Blues are wary Higuain will not come cheap, however, but are willing to break the bank following a poor season.
