Cape Town - Gonzalo Higuain's agent has denied media reports that the Argentina striker is headed to the English Premier League, saying his client is happy at Juventus.

Higuain has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea, but his agent and brother, Nicolas said there has been no contact over his services and is happy to stay at Juventus.

Reports had suggested that the 30-year-old striker would reunite with his former Napoli manager, Maurizio Sarri, who is said to be close to being appointed the new Chelsea manager.

He admitted that Higuain has a special relationship with Sarri, but it remains just that, as the Italian has not signed with the English Premier League side.

Nicolas told Sky Sport Italia: "At the moment we haven't spoken to any other clubs, as we have a three-year contract with Juventus. He is very happy in the city, at the club, with the Coach and the tactical system.

"All these things people talked about other clubs are just rumours, we haven't spoken to anybody. At the moment, he has three years on his contract with Juventus.

"Everyone knows his rapport with Sarri is wonderful and he sees him as a football father, but as far as I know, Sarri hasn't even signed for Chelsea yet. Secondly, Gonzalo is happy in Turin and hasn't received any indication from Juve, so I see no real chance of leaving.

"I heard about some argument in the locker room, but there's a code of football, it all stays in the locker room, so he hasn't told me anything."
