Chelsea’s struggles for a striker go way back further than this season and with it not being possible to sign anyone this summer, they need to make use of what they currently have.
Finishing third and winning the Europa League, though, Maurizio Sarri has done very well with what he’s been given.
But with the likely departure of Eden Hazard, along with a two-window transfer ban, Chelsea could suddenly find themselves losing ground on their rivals and that’s something no one in SW6 will want to see.
Chelsea, however, can take some inspiration from their London rivals Tottenham and look to utilise what they have got throughout the whole club.
For example, the likes of Michy Batshuayi and Tammy Abraham could really be helpful for the Blues next season, though only if Gonzalo Higuain is rightly not retained, despite the fact the BBC reported back in February that it was possible to.
Fans would have seen him and David Luiz in an argument the day before the Europa League final and with five goals in 14 Premier League games, he just isn’t worth the hassle.
The 31-year-old (who is valued at £40.5 million on Transfermarkt) is also not getting any younger and with Abraham and Batshuayi both earning the right to be back in contention, Chelsea should send the now ex-Argentina international right back to Juventus.
With a new, young attack threatening to take shape at Chelsea with Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic out on the wings, any one of Abraham, Batshuayi or Olivier Giroud would be bettered suited alongside them.
His loan spell is due to come to an end this summer, for the sake of giving the younger players a chance, do not keep Gonzalo Higuain, Chelsea!
