It feels like Gonzalo Higuaín has been on his way to Chelsea for decades but the Argentinian has finally touched down, completed his medical and signed for an excited Maurizio Sarri. This deal will surely see Alvaro Morata leave for Atlético Madrid…
The former Real Madrid and Napoli striker joins The Blues on a six-month loan deal with an option to buy for £32.5m in the summer.
Sadly for Chelsea fans, the transfer was far from finished by the twelve o’clock deadline, meaning that he is ineligible to play tomorrow against Tottenham in their Carabao Cup Semi-Final.

He’s a very strong striker. Especially in my first season in Naples. He did very well. He scored 36 goals in 35 matches in Serie A. For sure, he is one of the best strikers in my career.Sarri on Gonzalo’s Arrival
The 31-year-old joins Chelsea on loan from Italian Champions Juventus, hoping for better luck than his Milan loan stint, where he only scored six goals in Serie A.
