Chelsea are confident that they will bring in AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain in the winter transfer window. They are discussing with both Milan and his parent club Juventus, over a short-term move. The deal is expected to be completed for the 31-year-old Argentine forward, who would replace the underwhelming Alvaro Morata, report the Sun.
Chelsea have underwhelmed in the last two months as their Premier League title chase has fallen away, but if they don’t soon arrest their slump then their Champions League place could be in danger. Ordinarily, a loan move for a foreign striker carries with it some risks, but Maurizio Sarri’s experience with Higuain should help the transition.
