River Plate to make swap offer for Juventus striker Higuain

River Plate are preparing a move for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Tuttosport says River are exploring 'creative' ways of bringing Higuain back to Argentina this summer.

Higuain will have to accept a major cut on his €7m salary, while River will have to include players in their offer to tempt Juve into parting with the veteran.

Colombia U23 international midfielder Jorge Carrascal has been mentioned as a potential makeweight, though he won't be the only player offered by River.

For his part, Higuain has made it no secret he'd like to wind down his career with River.
