Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he regrets Chelsea were not able to sign Gonzalo Higuain in the summer transfer window.
With the window closing on Thursday, Chelsea are now unable to recruit another centre-forward between now and January. Alvaro Morata, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham are the options that Sarri has at his disposal?
Is that enough? With Morata misfiring and Giroud proving at Arsenal that he is unable to fire a team to the title, perhaps not. We could have done with signing a more accomplished and reliable centre-forward. On paper, Higuain would have been perfect.
Higuain himself admitted previously that Sarri wanted him at Chelsea, but the club were not so keen on the idea of signing him. That’s likely down to his age – Higuain is 31-years-old.
Sarri, though, has admitted he would have liked to have the Argentine at his disposal. He’s quoted by the Metro doing so:
“Higuain? It’s a little regret but in the end everyone after the market have a few little regrets.”
What do you think of this, Blues? Should the board have given him what he wanted?
