Chelsea have continued to struggle to bite their chances inside the box this better half of the season.
Games are coming thick and fast and any further bitter slip following their 2-0 loss at Arsenal could cost them a spot in next season’s Champions League.
Blues have already lined up Gonzalo Higuain to spearhead their frontline, who could arrive tomorrow after Maurizio Sarri failed to squeeze the best out of Alvaro Morata.
Chelsea were hopeful they would nail the deal for Higuain who was in rude form under Sarri during the manager’s spell at Napoli. However, they may have to cling tight a little longer before the 31-year-old arrives from Italy.
Talks over his switch has been agreed with parent club Juventus, however Higuain’s move was hinged upon AC Milan getting someone to fill his boots.
And now, Milan have successfully landed Genoa’s Krzysztof Piatek, per Calciomercato.
Piatek had been lined up as El Papito’s replacement and talks to finalise his move to the San Siro have been finalised. Piatek is valued around 30 million pounds and has been in blazing form for Genoa this campaign.
Since Piatek move is completed, Chelsea will have Higuain for the rest of the season, with a trigger clause that could extend his stay at the Bridge for another 12 months.
