Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri wants his club to sign on-loan centre-forward Gonzalo Higuain on a permanent deal this summer.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has called for his club to sign Gonzalo Higuain on a permanent deal.

Higuain joined the Blues on loan from Juventus during the January transfer window, and the Argentina international has since struck five times in 16 appearances for the English side in all competitions.

As it stands, the 31-year-old will head back to his parent club this summer, but Sarri is keen for Chelsea to secure the striker's services on a permanent basis ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

"I don't know about Gonzalo Higuain's future, you have to ask the club," Sarri told BBC Sport. "If he's staying then we can do very well in the next season."

That said, the English side are still waiting to learn whether their transfer ban imposed by FIFA will be lifted.

Higuain, who is said to be available for £32m at the end of the season, spent the first half of this season on loan at AC Milan before moving to the Premier League.
