Higuain moved to Napoli in 2013 from Real Madrid, signing a five-year contract with the club – and it seems Rodgers will again have to set his sights elsewhere with the former Madrid star happy with his current deal and to continue his playing career in Naples.

However, with Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert both scoring in the 2-0 Premier League win over Aston Villa on Saturday, the Northern Irishman may think the need for a new forward is no longer so prevalent.
