Chelsea centre forwards has struggled in the current football season despite the attacking talent and style possessed by the team. Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata have been tried by Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri but the duo have failed to live up to expectation. The Italian in his presumed frustration has been forced to deploy Belgium international Eden Hazard in the role, and this have sparked rumors of the possible arrival of a centre-forward.
Callum Wilson has been superb form for Bournemouth in the current season, while Gonzalo Higuain has been linked with a reunion with his former trainer. Sarri has expressed fondness for the former Real Madrid forward.
“I like him very much, he is a wonderful player and man,” Sarri said of Higuain.
“But I don’t want to talk about him. I have two and a half strikers at the moment, Higuain plays for Milan.”
On Wilson, Sarri added: “I don’t know about Wilson. Eddie [Howe] is a friend and I want to see him happy.”
Sarri went on to play down Chelsea’s chances of lifting the trophy ahead of Leicester City’s visit to Stamford Bridge.
“I have never seen Chelsea as title contenders for the Premier League,” he said.
“There are two teams ahead of us.
“It is not easy. 80 points is a high average and it is not easy in the Premier League. We have to just think about this match.
“Leicester City are a technical team but have players very fast, so a dangerous mix. We need a good performance to gain three points.”
