Transfer: Sarri to make decision between Higuain, Wilson

Sources have told ESPN FC that Sarri wants that man to be Higuain, with AC Milan willing to cut short the Argentine's loan from Juventus after just eight months and just six goals in 15 Serie A appearances this season.

Marina Granovskaia, general director at the London club, also wants to find a way to move the forward on.

The report details that the Argentina worldwide could make the switch to the Premier League in January, as Milan are prepared to cut his loan spell with them.

Gonzalo Higuain, Callum Wilson and Mauro Icardi have been three strikers linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the past weeks, but Sarri must take a step back and assess his current squad and must surely see Olivier Giroud is the striking option that must lead the line for the Blues.


England worldwide Wilson has found the back of the net nine times in the Premier League this season and has registered five assists.

Nevertheless, Higuain is Sarri's number one choice and recently dubbed him a "goal machine", with the forward having netted 36 times - a career high - in his one and only season under Sarri.

Higuain is now on loan at AC Milan and any deal would require them to terminate his deal early - however, it contains an obligation to buy the striker in the summer for £32m.

"A goal can change things, but if he is to continue here, he needs to take on responsibility".


"He had a tough moment, he has to put it behind him and get to work", said Leonardo.

"He is here right now".

Gonzalo Higuain's agent has travelled to London as Chelsea look to push through a deal for the AC Milan striker. "Seeing as he is here, he needs to get down and actually do something for this team".

According to a UK Sun report Blues manager Maurizio Sarri has lost faith with Morata, with Eden Hazard now playing as "False 9" for Chelsea.
