ChelseacoachMaurizio Sarri, now looks much more open about the possibility of bringing the AC Milanstriker, Gonzalo Higuain, on the transfer market in January 2019.
This was evidenced by Sarri's statement analyzing Higuain's performance while working together in Naples.
Sarri felt Higuain's sharpness in the 2015-2016 season was caused by various factors. "It's hard to say the cause. Sometimes, Higuain appeared very well. I think that season he played with a team that was very suitable for him," Sarri said.
"So every player, as I recall, had a big contribution to Higuain's record. So there were many causes. Not only about the coach, of course," the Chelsea coach added.
Even though Sarri and Higuain worked together for only one season, the Argentine footballer seemed to be very well suited to the strategy implemented by Sarri.
Under Sarri, Higuain scored a total of 38 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions. A total of 36 goals were scored by Higuain in the Italian League.
The incision made Higuain equal the record of Torino legend Gino Rossetti, who became the player with the most goals in a season in the Italian League. Gino Rossetti's record was created in the 1928-1929 season.
According to reports, Higuain will soon arrive at Chelsea and reunite with Sarri.Juventus as the owner of Higuain, reportedly have agreed with Chelsea to offer Higuain on loan for the next six months.
The agreement also includes the option to extend the loan for another season, which would be determined by Higuain's performance.
Jorginho was Chelsea's first signing as he arrived in a £57 million ($73m) deal alongside Sarri from Napoli in the summer.
The Italy international sits in the base of a three-man midfield and acts as a pivot for his side, passing the ball an average of 98 times per game.
