Chelsea travel to the Emirates Stadium this afternoon for a crucial Premier League fixture.

It had been hoped that the proposed deal that will see the Argentine striker, Gonzalo Higuain, would have been completed to allow the 31-year-old to be available for selection.

However, that hasn’t turned out to be the case and Higuain is still not, officially, a Chelsea player.

But, according to the tabloid publication, the Sun, striker approaching the latter stages of his career is intent on putting pen-to-paper on a loan deal and will become a Chelsea player in time to be available for selection for the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg, against Tottenham Hotspur, on Thursday.

It is, of course, a game that Chelsea trail Tottenham Hotspur by 1-0 after a controversial first-leg at Wembley Stadium.

To me, this deal continues to evoke memories of when another veteran striker, George Weah, came to Chelsea on a short-term deal.

Weah arrived in similar circumstances, made his debut against the same side and covered himself in glory by scoring.

Does the same fate await a certain Gonzalo Higuain?

  • You need to do your homework. Even if Higuain signs before the 2nd leg, he will not be eligible to play against Spurs because the rules state that any new player must be registered before the 1st leg to play in any two-legged tie. So no, Higuain won’t evoke memories of Weah.

  • I can’t wait to see Higuain figure in a Chelsea shirt,I pray he should be available against Spurs on Thursday.
    ####see GHiguain alongside #Cfcstars.

  • A panic buy from a team devoid of goals. When hazard leaves Chelski will be a mediocre outfit for sure.
