With the January transfer window almost upon us, speculation linking Gonzalo Higuain with a move to Stamford Bridge is still gathering momentum.

In recent games, Maurizio Sarri has preferred to utilise Eden Hazard as a false number nine, as opposed to selecting either Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud.

Some see this as an indication that Maurizio Sarri has given up on the idea of either the Frenchman or the Spaniard being the person to lead the front-line.

But, is Gonzalo Higuain the man to do just that?

At 31-years-of-age, there is the possibility that the Argentine has already passed his peak and the big question remains as to whether the ageing gunslinger has enough bullets left to make his mark in the Premier League.

According to the Italian news source, Sportmediaset, Higuain is said to be keen on the move and his club, Juventus, are willing to cut-short the players’ loan spell at AC Milan, in order to do a deal with Chelsea.

But I have my doubts as to whether this is a decent move or one last throw of the dice, although, perhaps, Maurizio Sarri sees a bargain here having witnessed what Higuain can do in Italian football.

Do you see it as a viable transfer or is it a big risk Chelsea should avoid?

Or, perhaps, you are of the opinion Chelsea should make a move for someone else.
