One of Serie A’s biggest stars is reportedly interested in making a move to Chelsea and that star is just waiting for a call from Blues boss Maurizio Sarri.
This is according to a report from Italian outlet Calciomercato, who state that prolific striker Gonzalo Higuain is hoping that the Blues come calling for him very soon.
Higuain is regarded as one of the most clinical strikers in the world and Chelsea could certainly do with bolstering their options up front with neither Olivier Giroud or Alvaro Morata managing to make the striker’s position their own recently.
Chelsea’s pursuit of Higuain has been handed a boost given that the 30-year-old loved his time being managed by Sarri during his time as Napoli boss.
Chelsea may need to sign Higuain in order to match their rivals Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham.
Harry Kane proved that the presence of a world class striker is necessary to be regarded as one of the Premier League’s best sides with his wonderful long-range effort in Tottenham’s 3-1 win against Chelsea yesterday evening.
Chelsea could also be handed a boost in their pursuit of Higuain with Corriere dello Sport reporting that Milan are struggling to finance a permanent move for Higuain – who is on loan from Juventus.
