Gonzalo Higuian

Maurizio Sarri has praised Chelsea’s strikeforce after being questioned about interest in signing Gonzalo Higuain.

Sarri has a wealth of talent at his disposal at Stamford Bridge. He has inherited a star-studded squad, which is one of the reasons why Chelsea are flying so far this season.

However, few would argue against the notion that he’s short in attack. Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are not prolific strikers. Signing a new centre-forward would take us to the next level.

One name that was thrown around in the summer was Gonzalo Higuain. He confirmed our interest in signing him following his move to AC Milan.

Sarri may well have been disappointed to miss out on the Argentine, but he’s not allowing himself to be hung up on it.

During a lengthy interview with Italian publication Corriere dello Sport (as translated by Sport Witness), Sarri was quizzed about his past interest in signing Higuain.

He responded to the question in a classy manner, praising the two strikers within his ranks, rather than being drawn on what could have been:

“I’m very happy with Giroud who does a huge job for the team. And Morata, who has an innate talent, and will soon prove it.”

Sarri appears to have a great deal of faith in Morata, who has struggled so far this term. The Spaniard has scored twice in his past two games, so perhaps this is the time he kicks on and the goals fly in.
