Is Gonzalo Higuain set to solve Chelsea’s striker problem?

He’s odds-on to join the Blues

Chelsea look to be on the verge of signing AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to our latest odds.

The former Juventus ace is odds-on at 1/5 to make the move to Stamford Bridge after a flurry of bets.

Chelsea have had to play Eden Hazard up front recently, with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud chipping in with just six league goals between them.

Goals haven’t been a problem for Higuain throughout his career. But would he be able to adapt to the Premier League? It’s handy that he already knows Maurizio Sarri, having worked with the Blues boss at Napoli.

“The betting suggests it is looking increasingly likely that Gonzalo Higuain will make the switch to Chelsea in this transfer window. The Argentina international is now long odds-on to be at the Premier League club at the end of this month,” said Coral’s John Hill.
