With Alvaro Morata and Oliver Giroud struggling to score goals on a regular basis this season, Chelsea are in the transfer market searching for a new centre-forward.

AC Milan's Gonzalo Higuain is being linked with a move to the Blues since the last few weeks and many reports are even stating that the deal is all but done. The Argentine forward enjoyed a spell with Maurizio Sarri at Napoli and could reunite with the Italian at the Stamford Bridge.

However, at 31, he is beyond his prime now and is not the striker he once used to be. His performances for AC Milan are less than convincing so far this season and he is struggling to find any consistency. He has scored six goals in 15 Serie A games this season, which is just one goal more than what Alvaro Morata scored for the Blues in the league this season.

Moreover, there are a number of other options for Chelsea to look at and so the Blues should ditch their plans of signing the former Real Madrid striker in order to sign a younger and more in-form striker.

Right on this note, here is the list of three strikers Chelsea should sign instead of Gonzalo Higuain.


#3 Callum Wilson

The Englishman has been a consistent performer for AFC Bournemouth ever since their promotion to the English Premier League and is now ready for a move to a bigger club.

Callum Wilson is a strong, aggressive and determined striker who gives everything on the football pitch. He is an exceptional header of the ball and is equally good with both feet.

The Bournemouth striker doesn't offer much in the creative sense but with the likes of Eden Hazard, Willan, and Mateo Kovacic creating chances for him, we can expect to be scoring a lot of goals in the Blue shirt.

He has scored 28 goals in 81 Premier League games for the Cherries thus far and is the club's leading goalscorer (9 goals) in the Premier League this season. His performances for the club also impressed Gareth Southgate, who gave him his first international cap in 2018.

He has been linked with a move to the London based club in recent weeks and the Coventry born striker is a younger and Premier League proven option available to the Blues.
