Gonzalo Higuain admits he would be open to a switch to the Premier League in the future as it “fascinates” him.

The former Real Madrid forward has spent the last five years playing in Italy, originally joining Napoli in 2013 before moving to Juventus three years later.

The 30-year-old has enjoyed sustained success during his two seasons in Turin, winning back-to-back Serie A and Coppa Italia titles, while he also helped the Old Lady reach the Champions League final in 2017.

Higuain is in no rush to leave the club but he has now indicated he would be interested in playing in the Premier League at some stage of his career.

“I have a contract with Juventus and no one has communicated anything different,’ he told ESPN in Argentina.

“I’m very calm, my soul stays in Turin for now. But I would love to play in the Premier League, it fascinates me a lot.”

Chelsea have been credited with an interest in Higuain over recent times but it would likely take a sizeable bid to prize him away from the Allianz Stadium given he has another three years remaining on his contract.

The former River Plate youngster is currently away on international duty with Argentina as he prepares for this summer’s World Cup in Russia.

La Albiceleste have been drawn in Group D for the finals where they will face Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria. They are priced at 1.60 to finish top of the group.
