Premier League side Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain on loan from Juventus until the end of the season.The 31-year-old had spent the first half of this season on loan to Milan, where he scored eight goals, but is now reunited with Maurizio Sarri, under whom he scored 39 goals at Napoli in 2015/16. Upon completing his loan move to Chelsea, Higuain, who will wear the number nine shirt, said: ‘When the opportunity to join Chelsea presented itself I had to take it. It’s a team I’ve always liked that has a lot of history, a wonderful stadium and they play in the Premier League, a league I’ve always wanted to play in. I now hope I can give back that trust Chelsea have shown me out on the pitch. I can’t wait to start and I hope to adapt as soon as possible.’ Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia added: ‘Gonzalo was our number one target in this transfer window and arrives with a proven record at the highest level. He has previously worked with Maurizio to great effect and is familiar with how the coach likes to play. This was not an easy deal for us to do because of the numerous parties involved, but we are delighted we were able to make it happen and we look forward to seeing the impact Gonzalo will make for us in the second half of the season.’ Despite the completion of the deal, Higuain – who will wear the No 9 shirt – will not be available for Chelsea’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Thursday night, but could be available for the FA Cup visit of Sheffield Wednesday this weekend.Photo Credit: Getty
