With Juventus swooping quickly to sign the Portuguese superstar, Ronaldo, it could open the door for Chelsea to bring a striker to the club who has previously been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

The striker in question being none other than Gonzalo Higuain.

According to the Italian news source, calciomercato, the Turin based club will be looking to balance both their squad and books by selling the 30-year-old Argentine striker.

Our referenced source suggests that the player could be available for €55 million, a reasonable price for a striker you might say.

However, here at Vital Chelsea, we’d question whether the price is too high for a striker of that age.

Our view is that the club would be better off adding a few million more to the pot and going after a younger striker.

But is that a view you concur with or would you be happy to see Chelsea spend that sort of money on Higuain?

  • #yeah though higuain is a better and sharp striker, but the age matters a lot as CFC would want to sign a deal not more than two years as in d case of roma’s striker last season. But let’s wait and hope for d best

  • I personally think higuain is a good player but too expensive for a player at that age apart from being a prolific striker age is no on his side and at this time they are more prone to injuries

  • If a 33yr old C. Ronaldo can be bought for €100m, then age is not really an issue. The question is what is he bringing to the club that will help us compete vigorously against the likes of Man city and others in the up coming season?
