Metro have Chelsea fans looking up with smiles on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Blues are willing to make a bid that will blow Arsenal out of the water.
The Gunners have been linked with the Napoli forward, who they are apparently keen on making their number one forward this summer, but Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is in need of another forward and sees his former Real Madrid man as the guy to propel Chelsea to the Champions League final.
We think a partnership between Costa and Pipita would be something to behold – and the Argentine is able to play as a lone forward and also as part of a pair – so it is little wonder Mourinho wants to get him to west London and will make a £29.1 million bid to do so.
Arsenal fans. Do you think that Higuain would chose a move to west London and Jose Mourinho over one to you? Let us know your thoughts below.
