Sarri wants to complete Higuain deal after opening up on Chelsea transfer deals
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to sign Gonzalo Higuain this month but the Italian insists he doesn’t know if a move will be made.
It is no secret that Chelsea are lacking a world class striker to lead the attack, as Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have not been good enough in front of goal this season.
Sarri has even started using star man Eden Hazard as his main man up top over the past few weeks, having lost faith in his two forwards.
And that has led to a lot of speculation that Chelsea are closing in on a deal to land Higuain for a fee of around £50 million, with some suggestions that his agent has flown into London to get a January deal done.
Now Sarri, who is keen to add a few players to the squad this January, has admitted the club knows his opinion on possible deals.
He said on the Sky Sports website:“As you know very well I am not involved in the market. I spoke with the club and they know my opinion.
“In my opinion we need two players. It depends on the club’s decision but I don’t know anything about the market, day by day or minute by minute.”
Is Higuain the right striker to sign this month?
Higuain is a world class striker that will score goals, but he is struggling in front of goal this season and buying him right now would not be the smartest decision.
Chelsea have the funds to land any striker and if they had the choice to sign Higuain or Inter Milan star Mauro Icardi, they should chose the young, fresher, hungrier Milan forward.
