Higuain could see his future at Juventus hanging in the balance, with latest reports indicating the club are searching for a new striker.

Higuain could see his time at Juve potentially come to an end as the club consider making a move for a new striker.

As per a report from the reliable Fabrizio Romano via Calciomercato, the future of the Argentine forward is hanging in the balance as it stands.

We initially reported how the club were considering a new contract for Higuain but it could all change in the coming months.

The report details how the 32-year-old Argentine striker, who is contracted to the Bianconeri until 2021, is no longer a guaranteed starter at the club.

The return to form of Paulo Dybala has pushed Higuain down the pecking order.

 Juventus are keen to strengthen their attack and purchase a player to compliment Dybala and Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, a player like Inter’s Mauro Icardi or Tottenham’s Harry Kane.

Higuain’s contract is an issue for Juventus, the report continues. The Bianconeri are not happy either with the length or wage guarantee in the agreement and would be happy to sell him for the right price.

Nothing final has been decided yet, but signs suggest that the Argentine will be leaving Turin in the coming months
