Newcastle United and Wolves are reportedly interested in giving Gonzalo Higuain a second chance in the Premier League after his disappointing spell with Chelsea.

Higuain spent the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea, scoring five goals in 19 appearances – which was not enough to convince the Blues to make his signing permanent.

The Argentine striker has since reunited with Maurizio Sarri at Juventus, where he has endured another mixed season and could be moved on at the next available opportunity.

According to the Express, there could yet be another chance for Higuain in the Premier League, as it is claimed that Newcastle and Wolves could go head to head for his signature.

The pair of Premier League clubs are looking to establish themselves in the top half, with Wolves having qualified for the Europa League last season and continuing to consolidate this year, while Newcastle could be given new appeal if their Saudi-backed takeover deal goes through.

The potential new owners are prepared to spend to bring in some high-profile additions, and Manchester United target Kalidou Koulibaly has been suggested as a potential reinforcement at the back.

River Plate want to take Higuain back to his homeland, while offers could arise from the MLS, but the 32-year-old is determined to stay in Europe a little longer, and could still be a statement signing for either Newcastle or Wolves.

It is suggested that Higuain would consider a return to England, with his time in Turin virtually guaranteed to be over imminently.
