Gonzalo Higuain will wear the no. 9 shirt at Chelsea.
Higuain has completed his loan move to Stamford Bridge after the Argentine striker was spotted leaving Milan airport to fly to London.
Blues boss, Maurizio Sarri, has been desperate to bring in a new frontman, with Alvaro Morata now expected to complete a loan move of his own to Atletico Madrid.
Higuain enjoyed his most prolific season ever under Sarri at Napoli and is eager to be reunited with the Italian.
He has completed his medicals and will now become first choice at Stamford Bridge, ahead of Olivier Giroud.
Chelsea however failed to register Higuain in time for Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Tottenham, after the deadline passed at midday on Wednesday.
