Chelsea supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from Metro with surprise, as the publication suggests that the Blues will move for Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, if Diego Costa doesn’t prove himself in the next two weeks.
Our resident Blues fans have been struggling to come to terms with how poor this season has been, and feel a major shake-up is needed in the January transfer window – and seeing Higuain arrive at Stamford Bridge wouldn’t be too shabby at all.
Costa has been far from his normal self this season, and has seriously underperformed for Mourinho’s side, and our landlord here in the Tavern has been slating the Spanish international every single week!
Meanwhile, Higuain has amassed 12 goals for Serie A outfit Napoli this season, and this has seemingly alerted Mourinho to the clinical frontman – and Dave, a hardcore Chelsea fan sitting by the dartboard had this to say: “Higuain would be a quality signing, he is exactly what we need, as Costa just isn’t as good as he used to be!”
Chelsea fans….. What do you make of this news? Would you like to see the striker at Stamford Bridge? Let us know your thoughts below!
