Chelsea are being linked with Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Higuain is under consideration as a replacement for veteran Didier Drogba.

Chelsea will have to break the bank to sign the Argentine forward after he signed a new deal with the Spanish giants last summer which keeps him at the Bernabeu until 2016.

But after spending £50m on Fernando Torres, it is believed that Roman Abramovich is ready to spend big once again as he looks to bring Higuain to Stamford Bridge.
