Chelsea fan has uploaded Gonzalo Higuain's highlights under Maurizio Sarri at Napoli

Gonzalo Higuain has finally completed his loan move to Chelsea.

In one of the most protracted deals of the January transfer window, the 31-year-old ended his spell with AC Milan early and secured his second loan away from parent club Juventus.

The number of clubs involved in the move made it difficult for Chelsea and Milan wanted to ensure they had secured a replacement - in the form of Krzysztof Piatek - before giving their consent.

The Blues have seriously struggled in the striking department this season with Alvaro Morata lacking confidence and Olivier Giroud failing to provide goals on a consistent basis.

Marry that to the fact N'Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic have just four goals between them this season and the need for a regular goal-scorer was obvious

The fanbase seems to be divided on whether Higuain will hit the ground running in the Premier League or will underwhelm as he has done with AC Milan earlier in the season.

There can be no doubting that the Argentinean is one of the best finishers in the sport, but he just hasn't looked the same since his initial season with Juventus.

Yet the biggest cause for optimism is the fact that Higuain actually worked under Maurizio Sarri for a season at Napoli and it proved to be a fruitful relationship. 

Higuain's highlights under Sarri

During the 2015-16 season, Higuain enjoyed the best season of his career with a stunning record of 38 goals in just 42 appearances.

So, it would seem that the 31-year-old enjoys 'Sarri-ball' and Chelsea fans will be hoping that kind of form can be transferred to England.

But don't just take it from the statistics, take a look at the video evidence and that was exactly what YouTuber 'CFCVideos' provided on the eve of Higuain's move.

On his day, Higuain is unstoppable.

That season at Napoli saw Higuain break a number of Serie A records and eventually secured him one of the most expensive transfers in history to Juventus.

As the video demonstrates, he was scoring all sorts of goals, with the fast-paced football associated with Sarri allowing him a number of goal-scoring opportunities.

Sarri hasn't been able to implement his philosophy to the same extent at Stamford Bridge but by adding another old influence from Napoli, he should move a little closer to achieving his end goal. 


There is a lot of pressure on Higuain to produce the goals that Morata and Giroud simply couldn't, yet many top strikers have struggled on English shores.

Chelsea have the option to extend his loan spell to include the 2019-20 season and they will have until June 30 to make their decision.

If Higuain can produce the same performances that he did in 2015-16, it'll be a no-brainer.
