The Blues' forward duo of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud somehow has not produced performances of note this season as Chelsea are currently facing an unfamiliar crisis of a shortage of goals.

As a consequence of this, Maurizio Sarri has recently started deploying the creative heart of Chelsea's Xi Eden Hazard, in the false nine role.

The Belgian talisman has already said that he prefers a role from the left-hand side and all these had forced the West London club to look out for a veteran goal scorer in the transfer window.

Seemingly they have turned to Gonzalo Higuain, a Seria A record holder for the most (36) goals in a single campaign. The Argentine has seen the best days of his career under Maurizio Sarri at Napoli. He was perfect in Sarri's system a few years ago and thus, him getting paired with Sarri looks very fascinating.

Unsurprisingly, Gonzalo Higuain's arrival at Stamford bridge would bring a series of consequences.

On this note, we take a look at three aftermaths we may see after the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain at the West London.

#1 Alvaro Morata's Exit

Chelsea's struggling forward Alvaro Morata's exit talks don't appear as a big surprise as the Blues have reportedly agreed to sign Higuain, who would certainly be the first choice striker till the cessation of reminder chunk of the season.


Immediately after Chelsea reaching the agreement to sign Higuain, reports have emerged that Alvaro Morata is in advanced talks with Atletico Madrid for a probable transfer.

Alvaro Morata kick-started his footballing career with Atletico Madrid when he was 13 years old, and after a period of 13 years he looks like would be returning to his boyhood club.
