It’s a move that, to be fair, is one that has split the Vital Chelsea fraternity.

Some of our readers would welcome the addition of the Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain to our squad whilst others see it is as something of a foolish move with the player being the wrong side of thirty and having no experience of a hectic and fiercely combative Premier League at all.

However, despite our reservations, it would appear that a deal is still on the cards.

Our associates at the Express, are running with the implication that Higuain’s representatives are in talks with Chelsea, something confirmed by the AC Milan manager, Gennaro Gattuso.

Furthermore, and more worryingly, the tabloid publication, the Sun, is championing the suggestion that Chelsea want to take Higuain on loan for the remainder of the season and that the 31-year-old Argentine remains Chelsea’s priority for this transfer window.

Oh, dear me!

Gone are the days of Hernan Crespo, Didier Drogba and Diego Costa to name but three, now we’re plunging headfirst into bringing in a striker whose parent club, Juventus, felt fit to palm out on loan.

  • Oh deary me indeed.

    Are we seriously going for another short term January bargain basement buy for the pivotal role of striker? Giroud really worked out well didn’t he!!??

    No, for the Sarri philosophy, a younger and faster Higuin would have worked. But this is no longer that Higuin.

    The striker does not need to be a big target man but a technical player who can receive the ball on the ground at speed, control and pass without slowing down the attack.

    We need an Aguero type player but of course he would not be available. If we are prepared to spend £50m on Higuin or Wilson then why not £100m for an Icardi or Dybala? £100m well invested, in my opinion.

  • Higuain is a better striker than Morata any day, any time. Moreover, his being shipped out by Juve was not because he’s no longer good but to accommodate CR7 who’s still the best player in the world even at the age of 33.
