Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has admitted that he is an admirer of AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain amid speculation over a move.

There have been reports that a swap deal could be on the cards between the Premier League side and the Rossoneri which would see Alvaro Morata move to San Siro.

Sarri remained coy on the chances of a January move, but did speak of his admiration for Higuain.

“I like him very much, he is a wonderful player and man,” he told reporters.

“But I don’t want to talk about Higuain. I have two and a half strikers [referring to Eden Hazard] at the moment, Higuain plays for Milan.”
