Gonzalo Higuain could be set to make his Chelsea debut this evening in the FA Cup against Sheffield Wednesday.
The experienced striker finally arrived at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday after Maurizio Sarri had tried to lure him to the club in the summer.
Although the 31-year-old headed to AC Milan on loan from Juventus, the Italian head coach finally got his man after striking a deal with Juventus.
Chelsea fans will be praying the deal to bring Higuain to the club can solve their issues upfront.
Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have both struggled leading the line this season, with the former now set to seal a loan move to Atletico Madrid in the coming days.
Sarri has utilised Eden Hazard through the middle over the past month, yet it was clear for all to see on Thursday night against Tottenham that he is much better playing out wide on the left.
Having netted goals for fun during his time with Real Madrid, Napoli and Juventus, everyone connected with the Blues will be hoping he can do likewise.
Well, the signs look good if footage of him on the training ground is anything to go by.
Chelsea uploaded a video on Twitter of Higuain at Cobham and it’s fair to see that fans are very excited to see him in action.
