Gonzalo Higuain

Chelsea would strike gold by signing Gonzalo Higuain

Maurizio Sarri needs to sign a new striker to lead the line at Stamford Bridge and Chelsea have shown their firm interest in Gonzalo Higuain to fill that role, as per The Telegraph. The former Madrid striker is at AC Milan on a loan deal which could be cut short by Juventus as they want to offload him on a permanent basis (h/t The Telegraph).

The Argentine forward moved to Milan on loan in the summer after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus. He has struggled to get going for the Rossoneri and has scored just eight goals in all competition. Given their aspirations to qualify for the Champions League, it might be better to let Higuain join Chelsea and reunite with his former coach.

Since Higuain has already crossed the 30-year-old landmark, it would be unlikely that Chelsea see him as the permanent solution to their woes at front. The Blues have a strict transfer policy which restricts them from giving more than one-year contracts to players who are in their 30s.

The Argentine has still got a big transfer left in him and Chelsea could provide him with a chance to rejuvenate his ageing career. At Milan, due to lack of support and creativity, he has found himself struggling to make an impact. He would love the opportunity to play for a Chelsea side that is full of creative players and are looking for a lethal finisher to compliment their attacks.

Higuain had his best season in the Serie A under Sarri when he scored 36 goals for Napoli. Both the coach and the player share a good relationship and should love to work again together. Given Higuain’s ability to make smart movements inside the box and handle the defenders with his physicality, he can prove to be a lethal asset for a Chelsea side that has lacked an impactful striker throughout the season.

Alvaro Morrata has been a misfit since his big-money move from the Spanish giants Real Madrid and Chelsea should consider selling him. If that happens, Chelsea would need a player like the 31-year-old Argentine striker to fill the void. He can prove to be a lethal signing given his scoring prowess and could make a difference for the Blues in their ambitions to compete for the Premier League trophy next season.
