Sarri will get the best, Higuain has Premier League warning and Chelsea told £80m for Premier League star Richarlison
Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuaín has warned the Premier League, Maurizio Sarri ‘will get the best out of me’
Higuaín has been considered to be one of the best strikers in Europe for the past few years, but struggled at AC Milan during his brief loan spell at the San Siro and ultimately made the move to Chelsea last month, as Sarri needed a world class striker in his attack.
The Argentine enjoyed the highest goalscoring return of his career during Sarri’s tenure at Napoli, finding the back of the net on 38 occasions in 2015/16, and the Blues boss is hoping to get that kind of form out of the Juventus striker.
And Higuain is confident Sarri could help him rekindle that form in the Premier League, telling the Sky Sports website: “He is the coach that has got the best out of me,” the 31-year-old said. “I know him well, he knows me well.
“I’m hopeful I will get back to that level we had before, this is the idea. He is someone who helps me, knows my game and how to get the best out of me.
“I am very happy to be here. It’s a wonderful club with a wonderful stadium and it is really a fantastic experience. I hope with time that this team will be able to achieve all the goals they can.”
Here is what we think.
Higuaín is a top class striker that just needs the chances to score, and playing in front of the likes of Eden hazard, Willian and Pedro, he should find the net on a regular basis from now until the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Everton will demand £80million for Chelsea transfer target Richarlison.
Richarlison was a transfer target for Chelsea during the summer transfer window, but the Blues failed to make an official move after convincing Hazard to reject a big money move to Real Madrid and stay at Stamford Bridge for one more season.
However, Chelsea are monitoring several potential playmakers who can fill the boots of Hazard and are reportedly keen on a transfer deal for Richarlison when the Belgian does leave.
But the Daily Star website has claimed that Everton will look to double their £40 million fee paid for Richarlison and will demand in excess of £80 million for the Brazilian, who has fallen out of favour with boss Marco Silva.
