Maurizio Sarri has sparked speculation that he could make a move for Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuaín.
It is no secret that the former Napoli boss is a huge fan of the Argentine striker having worked with the Argentine during his days with the Italian side, and there were some rumours in the summer transfer window which suggested Sarri was keen to make a move for Higuaín.
Indeed Higuaín revealed that Sarri wanted to complete a transfer deal before he opted to leave Juventus for a loan move to Seri A rivals AC Milan, claiming that the Chelsea boss was the only person who wanted a deal to happen.
‘I have big respect for Sarri but he was the only one who wanted me at Chelsea,’ the Argentine said after moving to AC Milan.
But as we seek a world class striker to help Eden Hazard score the goals, Sarri has sparked speculation by admitting that he misses Higuaín and the goals the Argentine scored.
And Sarri has admitted that ‘he misses Higuain’ and believes the striker will continue to score goals until the day he dies.
He was quoted on the Metro website: ‘All I can say is that I feel Gonzalo left Napoli too soon. If he had stayed for another season, I think we could’ve been in a condition to win. Higuain was a part of the fantastic mechanism we created, we understood each other so well.
‘It was perfect synchronicity and the regrets will probably stick with us. I miss Higuain a great deal. I miss him because he’ll keep scoring goals until the day he dies.
‘He is a goal machine, a systematic and automatic jackpot.’
Would Higuaín be welcome if Sarri decided to make a move?
There is no doubt that Higuaín is still one of the very best strikers in world football and is the best in Serie A, but he is no longer the forward he once was and coming to Stamford Bridge so late in his career would not be the wisest move for both us and the player.
So I would prefer Sarri to replace Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud with a proven Premier League hitman, maybe bring Romelu Lukaku back or try to buy Harry Kane, as Higuaín is past his best.
Get the Chelsea word out there!
