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.

Sarri knows he needs to add a striker to the squad if we are to get back into the Champions League and mount a serious challenge for some silverware this season.

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.

Gattuso was quoted on the Sky Sports website: “When a player makes up his mind it becomes hard to convince them otherwise.

“I have a relationship with him that features great honesty, we say things to one another’s face.

“At the moment, he’s our player and we’re holding on tightly to him. I don’t know what will happen.

“It’s his mind, not mine. The most important thing is to talk as men, look each other in the eyes and speak the truth.

“I still don’t understand what Higuain’s unhappy about because I see a happy lad, involved in the locker room.

“We’ll see what happens. If it was up to me, I’d keep him at my house and feed him my dinner.”

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.
