Sarri hints at the need for Chelsea to sign attackers in January

Chelsea do not expect Eden Hazard to do this soon amid transfer fear

The 31-year-old had been widely fancied to join the Blues prior to the transfer window with reports indicating that the striker is unsettled with the Rossoneri.

The January transfer window has entered its third day and clubs are becoming more active as the market progress.

But with Higuain only currently on loan at Milan from Juventus, Goal understands the Premier League outfit were tired of negotiating with two separate clubs during the winter window and will now look elsewhere in their pursuit of a new centre-forward.

Paris Saint-Germain are claimed to be keen on signing the midfielder and some of the top names in the Premier League are also very much interested in getting their hands on him.

AC Milan's Gonzalo Higuain has been linked with Chelsea, but Maurizio Sarri says he does not need a striker and wants a winger instead. I think we need something different for characteristics.

"I have to think of my responsibility with the training". I have to try to improve my players, my team, my offensive phase, or better my offensive phase in the last 20 metres.

"We have to try to solve the problem of the last 15, 20 metres", the Italian said after his team's 0-0 draw with relegation-threatened Southampton on Wednesday.

But according to Goal, the Blues will now not be signing Higuain in January despite recent reports suggesting otherwise. I know very well Gonzalo, he is a simple and passionate guy who lives every situation with great enthusiasm.

Higuain, who is now on loan at AC Milan from Juventus, will not be moving to another club, as per Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici, who said, "About his future, I think he's important for AC Milan, he's a great striker and they want to keep him".
