Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says striker Gonzalo Higuain is in final negotiations to join the Premier League club from Napoli.

Higuain scored 36 goals in 35 Serie A games in his one season at Napoli under Sarri.

Sarri says ``they're a few hours into signing a contract.''

But Higuain won't be signed in time to face Tottenham in the semifinals of the League Cup on Thursday. Chelsea trails 1-0 from the first leg.
