  • Gonzalo Higuain Milan Dudelange Europa League

"Morata seems to have a soft underbelly, he likes a tap-in but does not really like to go through the pain barrier to score goals". After the stalemate draw against Southampton, it seems Sarri desperately want a striker in the January transfer window.

However, former Norwich City star Dublin seems to think that he would be a great signing for the west London club. The forward's agent is in London to finalize a move.

Chelsea are closing in on finalising the signature of AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to Spanish daily Marca.

The Argentine is unhappy at the San Siro and wants to cut short his loan spell in Milan to join Maurizio Sarri, who managed him at Napoli. However, Sarri has made clear that he's unhappy with Alvaro Morata as his first choice.

However, Milan sporting director Leonardo said on Tuesday that Higuain had to "get down to work".

Higuain has enjoyed quite an extraordinary career, at least at club level, initially making his name at Real Madrid before going on to garner the reputation of being one of the most best strikers in the world upon his move to Italy.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is dipping his toe into the transfer market, but is not willing to make the plunge to strengthen his squad as we head into the second part of the season.

For now, Gonzalo Higuain's future remains up in the air, with the player also coming in for criticism from AC Milan. He was sent to Milan to free up space on the wage bill.

Any agreement to bring in Higuain this month will not be easy, however, with Chelsea reluctant to deviate from their policy of offering only one-year contracts to players over the age of 30 or commit to any lucrative obligation to buy him from Juventus at the end of the season. Their policy is the sole reason the likes of Lampard, Terry and Fabregas opted to leave Stamford Bridge.
