The Blues are yet to officially announce the deal yet the fans are over the place declaring their love for the Argentine international who will be joining from Italian club AC Milan.

Speaking to the media, the manager was quoted as saying: “I know Higuain and his agent are negotiating with the club in this moment. I hope, and I think, we will finalise the deal in the next few hours,” Sarri said.

“This season he had some troubles but I think that’s part of every player’s career, you have your down moments. We hope we can regenerate him quickly so he can pay us back with his goals.

“It’s very difficult in January to find one of the most important strikers in the world. So I think the club is working very well because it’s not easy to get a new striker.”

“He is a very strong striker, especially in my first season in Naples, he did very well,” Sarri said.

“He scored 36 goals in 35 matches in Serie A. That season he scored 39 goals so he did very, very well.

“For sure he is one of the best strikers [I have worked with] in my career.”

When asked if Higuain has the charisma to succeed at Stamford Bridge, the manager was quick to suggest that the striker has the much-needed experience: “He played four seasons for Real Madrid so I think he has the right experience to play here.”
