Chelsea transfer target Gonzalo Higuain insists that he is not thinking of leaving AC Milan.
The Argentine striker, currently on loan at the San Siro from Juventus, has been linked with a move away following reports that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is on the verge of a return to the Rossoneri.
Boss Maurizio Sarri is desperate to have a world class striker in the squad that could score around 30-40 goals a season and make them real title contenders, and has been linked with some of the games most exciting forwards.
However, amidst speculation that we are keen to bringing him to London, Higuain launched a passionate rebuttal ahead of Milan’s Europa League clash with Dudelange, admitting that he has no intentions of leaving the club.
“The coach said I never asked to leave the club, and this says it all about my intentions,” Higuain was quoted on the Calciomercato website.
“I only have AC Milan in my mind and I don’t consider myself the star of this team.”
Forget Higuain as Sarri should bring Krzysztof Piatek to Stamford Bridge?
A few seasons ago Higuain would have cost anywhere between £100-150 million to acquire, such was his goal-scoring ability, and although he has got on in years, he is still a world class goal-scorer.
However, he is now getting on in age and if we brought him to London he would only have a few good seasons left in his legs, so for the £50 million he is going for, he would not be worth it.
Piatek on the other-hand is only 23-years of age and scoring goals for fun in Serie A, already netting 10 in the League for a side that would struggle to stay in the Premier League.
