Chelsea supporters are hoping that the deal to bring the Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain, to the club can be concluded in time for the player to be available for selection for the Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg, against Tottenham Hotspur this Thursday evening.
However, it appears, according to the media, it is a race against time that Chelsea could be set to lose, according to the news source, the Daily Mail, which is implying the loan deal is proving difficult to complete due to AC Milan wanting to bring in a replacement first.
This is something also picked up on by the news source, Sky Sports, which is championing the inference that the deal will only get completed when AC Milan have concluded a deal for the Genoa striker, Krzysztof Piatek.
Our above source is reporting that the AC Milan assistant manager, Luigi Riccio, has admitted the negotiations to bring the Polish international to the San Siro are still ongoing.
It’s a point that is given further depth by the media vehicle, Sky Sports Italy, who are reporting that a deal for the 23-year-old Pole is nearing an agreement with Milan agreeing to cough up €35 million up front instead of instalments.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we’re hoping the Piatek deal is put to bed quickly as the scene is set for a hero to emerge this Thursday night.
Picture the scene, a game deadlocked at 1-1 with all to play for, Higuain stripped off on the touchline ready to make his bow. A huge roar greets his arrival. Minutes later a cross into the box is met by a towering far post header that nestles in the back of the net. A place at Wembley is ours.
It’s not too much to dream of, is it?
