Chelsea have been a mixed bag in the Premier League this season as they’ve struggled to perform against some of the big sides, which has put their top four hopes in doubt.
The Blues have encountered a number of problems in the current campaign and one of their biggest has been at the pinnacle of the attack, as Gonzalo Higuain has failed to live up to expectations since moving to Stamford Bridge.
But, it appears as if fans may not have to witness his poor performances for much longer, as according to The Mirror (via Calciomercato), Chelsea are not going to extend Gonzalo Higuain’s stay at Stamford Bridge.
Sadly, the Argentine has produced a disappointing three goals in 13 games for the Blues which certainly hasn’t helped their push for a top four spot, so it’s about time they started looking at replacements.
Interestingly, Maurizio Sarri actually already has the perfect replacement at his fingertips at Chelsea in the form of Tammy Abraham.
The Englishman has established himself as one of the deadliest strikers in the Championship this season having produced an impressive 24 goals and two assists. He has everything you could want in a striker with the pace to cause problems and the finishing ability to make the most of promising positions.
He deserves his shot in the Premier League next season and Higuain’s potential exit could provide him with the perfect opportunity. Indeed, the 21-year-old is a very exciting attacker who will no doubt be hungry to showcase his talents after an impressive spell at Villa Park, so the transfer ban shouldn’t be an issue.
