Latest Chelsea transfer rumours: Higuain, Paredes, Morata and more

Gonzalo Higuain could be wearing blue by Monday if the latest reports around Chelsea's transfer activity hold true.  Maurizio Sarri's team take on Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday evening, and will have to continue on with the options available to the Italian up front while fans wait for the Juventus centre-forward to cut short his loan spell with Milan to move to London.  It is a deal that could be wrapped up within 48 hours - although yesterday saw claims that he would be confirmed on Friday!    Chelsea have other business to attend to, and after a busy week for the rumour mill it is time to round up the links to Stamford Bridge over who will be coming and going this month.  Here are the latest Chelsea transfer rumours... Gonzalo Higuain to Chelsea 'done'  Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is understood to be in London to complete his move to Chelsea, with confirmation expected in the coming days.   Fabrizio Romano went as far as to tell one fan that the done is already done from his official Twitter account.  Unfortunately, Chelsea did not make his switch official in time to name him to face Arsenal.  Higuain has previously worked under Sarri at Napoli with whom he completed his best-ever return in a league season with 36 goals scored in 35 games.  Much will be expected of the Argentinian. Much is still expected from Chelsea's transfer business too.  After the striker situation is sorted out for the Blues, attention will turn to their next pressing position - a new midfielder.   Leandro Paredes transfer rumours  Paris Saint-Germain appear to have beaten Chelsea to the signing of former Roma midfielder Leandro Paredes.  The Argentinian is currently playing for Zenit St Petersburg in Russia but was previously touted as one of the finest young talents in Serie A.  He is another deep-lying playmaker, like Cesc Fabregas who left Stamford Bridge for Monaco earlier this month, and would have been an alternative to Jorginho in his role at the base of midfield.  It seems that the Ligue 1 outfit are further along in their discussions to sign Paredes, with his price set at £36million.   RMC Sport claim that PSG already have an agreement in place.  They moved to sign the Zenit midfielder after running into difficulties with Borussia Dortmund in their pursuit of Julian Weigl.  Unfortunately for Sarri, there's more bad news over another target too.   Nicolo Barella transfer rumours   Inter have beaten Chelsea to signature of Cagliari midfilder Nicolo Barella according to Calcio Mercato .  Following comments from his club and officials that he would not be leaving in January, the Milan-based club have apparently struck a deal that will see the player join them in the summer.  The 21-year-old is said to have already accepted the details of the proposed personal terms. All that is left for the move to be signed off.  Boca Juniors midfielder Nahitan Nandez is expected to replace Barella at Cagliari Adrien Rabiot transfer rumours  Barcelona, Paris S
