Gonzalo Higuain

I'd take Higuaín on loan for the rest of the season but that still leaves us without an answer there next year.  I know he's fallen off since 2 seasons ago but I'd still take Belotti as an option.  I think he'd do very well in our team and improve us a lot up front.  He wouldn't be nearly as expensive now either.  
We just need to be careful because of the potential transfer ban.

If it's not a loan I can't see it happening.  The same reason Juventus want it to be a sale is the same reason it can't be a sale from our perspective, his age.

yeh has to be a loan IMO.  Milan, if (big if) they get top 4, will pay Juventus 54m Euros in total for the whole operation inc. the loan fee of 18m euros.  We wont pay anywhere near that.  So a loan with obligation to buy is a no-no, because Juve would likely want similar to the Milan agreement.  And a straight permanent deal is a no go because what would Juventus ask?   If they're on course to get 54m euros from Milan?

Yeah.  54m euros, no way our board will pay that and honestly no way they should.

So he's on his way, I will welcome him with open arms.

Agreed this false 9 is horrible. 

And that speaks of the state we are in, where the coach rather play a false 9 then an actual striker. 

What the board has done with the strikers have been abysmal.

Imagine the 2 chances that fell to Willian and the chance that fell to Pedro from Alonsos cross had fallen to this guy. 

4-1.

I was worried about Higuains lack if pace but the way we play (high up the pitch agaisnt super defensive sides, due to our dominance in possession) it won't matter.

Job done.

Get this deal done.

He doesn't have blistering pace (he never has) but he isn't slow. Giroud would be what I would call slow.

Where Higuain does make up for it is his movement off the ball and positions he'll find himself in are that of a natural predatory striker, something which Morata and Giroud are not.

We have players behind him who will create chances for him and I do think short term, he would be a big upgrade on what we have.

That's true. For someone being called out for his lack of pace for ages he really is quite nippy even if he is not 100% in shape, which probably due to his endomorph body type. And given he has never been super pacey anyway his game is not build on that but rahte rhis positioning and goal instinct. The question is if this does translate to the premier league without any transition and whether his recent decline in form is jus tthat or sign of a permanent decline. 31 is hardly an age for a striker but given he has been around for ages he could be physically worn out just like FAbregas.
