Chelsea ‘have agreed’ a swap deal involving Alvaro Morata and Gonzalo Higuain this coming January.
Morata has not had the best time of it since his move to Stamford Bridge and has constantly been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, as the Spaniard has only managed four Premier League goals this season, and his performances has led to Maurizio Sarri starting Eden Hazard up-front, as he looks to add goals to the side.
That has led to speculation that Sarri will delve into his transfer kitty and bring in a world class striker during the January window, with the miss-firing Hazard linked with a shock move.
Reports on the Metro website have claimed the two sides are ‘perfecting the final details’ of an exchange which is now described as inevitable, with just the nature of the swap still to be decided.
Sarri is seeing his title challenge fade with every passing week and knows he must improve the squad as soon as possible in a bid to get the side back challenging for all the major trophies in the coming seasons.
Is this deal really worth it for Sarri?
Morata is not the world class striker that many had hoped he would be, so getting rid of him in the coming transfer windows should be a priority for Sarri as he is becoming a real hinderance to the starting line-up. But Higuain is not playing at his very best right now and signing him could be a mistake.
The Argentine is struggling for goals in Seria A and has not scored since October, so why would his fortunes change in a League that is twice as difficult as the Italian League?
Higuain is a world class striker, but right now there are much better options out there.
