UPDATE! Maurizio Sarri Has Decided To Replace Alvaro Morata With 71-Goal Striker


Maurizio Sarri Has Decided To Replace Alvaro Morata

Chelsea are weighing in on a deal for Argentinean and AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain, this is according to reports.

The Blues graced the Premier League this season with a flying start but their biggest weakness has been the forward, with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud displaying poor form.

Maurizio Sarri took charge of the helms of Chelsea after so much dilly dallying and so, he could only sign two outfield players(midfielders). The Italian manager is still rebuilding the squad of the Blues and he wants to add a striker to his plethora of otherwise world class squad.

According to talian news outlet Sport Mediaset who cited a report from Calciomercato, Sarri likes Higuain and he is already looking to reunited with the star.

Under the auspices of Sarri, Higuain enjoyed a barnstorming spell at Napoli where he scored 71 League goals in 104 appearances. Higuain moved to AC Milan this term and he has already scored five goals in 11 League games.

The report claims Sarri is not impressed with the recent show-off of Alvaro Morata, and the club are likely to go after a forward that will complement the efforts of Eden Hazard upfront.

Gennaro Gattuso is looking to sign Alvaro Morata from Chelsea, this may lead to a swap deal between the clubs in the question.

However, at 31, Sarri has been urged to look for a younger striker that would stay with the club for the long term.
