From England: Sarri continues to push for Higuain but deal is complicated

From England: Sarri continues to push for Higuain but deal is complicated

Chelsea could reportedly shift their focus towards signing Callum Wilson from Bournemouth, should they fail to acquire the services of Juventus' Gonzalo Higuain.

Sarri will hope to get the best out of Higuain, whose form in Naples saw him land a move to Juventus in a mouthwatering £77.9m move three years ago.

Marina Granovskaia, general director at the London club, also wants to find a way to move the forward on.

Higuain sent out on loan to AC Milan last August after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and the Argentine has been unable to find his footing at the club.

Higuain joined the Rossoneri with a view to a permanent £32million switch at the end of the season, but Chelsea would be reluctant to spend so much on a player who is already in his thirties.


By contrast, Higuain netted 38 times in just 42 appearances for Napoli when managed by Sarri in the 2015-16 campaign.

"He has to make a decision and take on his share of the responsibility", said Leo. "Seeing as he is here, he needs to get down and actually do something for this team".

The west London side are desperate to recruit a new marksman during the winter period and Higuain, who has previously worked under Sarri at Napoli has been earmarked as the prime option.

According to a UK Sun report Blues manager Maurizio Sarri has lost faith with Morata, with Eden Hazard now playing as "False 9" for Chelsea.

A World Cup runner-up in 2014, he is also a prolific victor of trophies having claimed three Liga titles with Real Madrid and two Serie A victories at Juventus amid a plethora of cup successes at Madrid, Napoli and Juve.
