Chelsea gaffer Maurizio Sarri is said to be interested in bringing Gonzalo Higuain to Stamford Bridge when the January transfer window opens.
According to the report by UK Sun, Maurizio Sarri wanted to sign Higuain immediately he replaced Antonio Conte at Chelsea, but the deal failed to work.
And now that he has lost fate in Spanish striker Alvaro Morata, Sarri wants a new sharp forward that can help the Blues fight for the Premier League title next year.
