Sarri already shopping for Morata’s replacement?

There are fears that West London side Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri might have begun shopping for a replacement for Alvaro Morata following his reported keen interest in Gonzalo Higuain ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

The Spanish striker has not had it all good at the Stamford Bridge and has been unconvincing with his bad goal scoring form which makes the Italian boss ready to have a new replacement as the league title race gets tougher.

It is also reported that the former Real Madrid striker will fancy a return to the Italian Serie A where he had a good spell with Juventus between 2014-2016 as he can no longer prove himself at the Stamford Bridge.

However, the former Napoli boss is already making moves to have the bid for Gonzalo Higuain sanctioned by the club’s hierarchy so as to complete a move for him in January when the transfer window reopens.

Meanwhile, the major constraint for the Blues boss is the fact that Gonzalo Higuain has crossed the age of 30 which makes him unfit for the club’s policy as he will not be handed more than a year contract which might not be accepted by the Argentina international.
