In February 2019, Gonzalo Higuain scored twice in their match against relegated Premier League side, Huddersfield, but has not scored since the Chelsea 2-1 win over Fulham in March.
The Blues still have the option to buy Higuain for £31.3m (36M Euros) or extend his loan deal till next year summer (June 2020) for 18m euros (£15.6m).
While assessing his start to life at Stamford Bridge, Higuain was quoted by saying;
“I’m happy here’. “It’s always nice to try a new league and it’s my first taste of the Premier League.
“Obviously it’s a period where I’m adapting but I’m hoping that, although I’ve only got a short time, I can finish well.
“The best thing we can do is qualify for the Champions League and hopefully win the Europa League too.”
SaveChelsea.net previously made a report on how Fabio Capello was optimistic on Higuain transfer to Chelsea.
The former England boss expressed confidence that The Blues would land Gonzalo Higuain to solve their goalscoring woes. The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid proved to be the last straw that broke the camel’s back.
