Chelsea have agreed a deal with Juventus to sign Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuaín on a loan deal.
With boss Maurizio Sarri desperate to add a world class striker to his front-line, there has been alot of speculation in the media which have suggested that Higuain is the man the Italian wants.
Higuain had his most successful season under Sarri, breaking the Serie A goalscoring record with 36 goals in the 2015/16 campaign, and is reportedly keen to link-up with his former coach suggestions in the media have claimed.
However, AC Milan boss Grennaro Gattuso hinted that Higuain will stay at the Italian giants, claiming the striker had never asked to leave.
Gattuso Tweeted: “There are lots of rumors concerning @G_Higuain but he’s relaxed, training well with his teammates and working hard.
“@G_Higuain is always smiling and joking with his teammates. Probably something changed after the penalty missed and the red card against Juve.
“I want to stress the fact that Gonzalo has never come to me to tell me he wants to leave”
But now reports on the Sky Sports website have claimed that we have agreed a loan deal with Juventus, with the option ox extending another 12 months if certain aspects of the deal are met.
Will Higuain be a good buy for us?
Higuain is a top striker that will score goals if he is happy and settled, but he is not the long-term answer to our problems if reports are true as he is coming to the back-end of his career, and his goal-scoring numbers will eventually drop.
However, he is a real superstar of the game and the kind of striker that will make an immediate impact on the side if he does actually sign for the club.
