Chelsea are reportedly ready to renew their interest in Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Higuain has been on Chelsea's radar for some time, while the likes of Juventus, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have all shown interest in the 25-year-old over the past twelve months.

According to AS, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is prepared to pay €30million to secure the Argentina international's services as the west London club look to add to their options in attack.

Chelsea on Wednesday night agreed to let Daniel Sturridge join Liverpool in a £12m deal and are believed to be looking to bring in at least one new striker during this month's transfer window, with Demba Ba agreeing a £7m move from Newcastle.

Even with Ba at the club, manager Rafael Benitez is still be light on numbers in attack, with Fernando Torres his only other recognised striker.

Radamel Falcao is believed to be Abramovich's top transfer target for 2013, but the Atletico Madrid striker is unlikely to be on the move before the summer, and could cost as much as €60m.

Higuain's agent and father, Jorge, last year admitted that joining either Chelsea or Juventus would be a "great opportunity" for the forward.

"At Real Madrid nobody has been talking about wanting to sell Gonzalo, and he also does not have any intention of leaving," he had said.

"In fact the idea is to continue the relationship until his contract expires in June 2016."

But reports in Spain throughout 2012 have suggested that Los Blancos could be open to a sale, and Higuain Snr called Chelsea and Juve "two great clubs...two huge opportunities," adding: "If someone told us that we are no longer welcome [at Madrid], I am sure that the offers would not be bad."
