Chelsea can improve next season despite transfer ban - Sarri

Chelsea can improve next season despite transfer ban - Sarri

Higuain still has time to become a fan favourite, if he can fire Chelsea to a top four finish and also Europa League glory.

Sarri insists he wants to keep Higuain next season but wants him to improve physically for the Premier League.

"It was a problem for Suarez in the first season at Liverpool, in the second season he scored 24 goals". The following season he scored 11 league goals, before going on to score 23 and 31 respectively in those that followed.

Chelsea welcome West Ham United in the Premier League on Monday and the Blues will need to win this game if they wish to keep pace with the likes of Arsenal and Spurs.

Higuain has scored three times so far for Chelsea but he has lost his place to Olivier Giroud in recent weeks. It was a problem also for (Luis) Suarez.

Chelsea must still make trips to both Liverpool and Manchester United in a testing end to the season, leaving the Blues eyeing even more closely home wins over West Ham, Burnley and Watford.

New Zealand police on Thursday filed 49 counts of murder against Tarrant, bringing the total number of murder charges to 50. Nabi had attempted to attend the accused's first court appearance but was prevented from entering the courtroom.

"I think he needs time to improve his condition and be suitable for the Premier League".

When asked if he wanted Higuain to stay next season, Sarri replied, "Yes of course, but it depends on the club, it depends on Juventus".

And Sarri still believes that move should go ahead despite Higuain scoring just three times since arriving at Stamford Bridge.

"But I think he is able to do it. It's not clear the situation at the moment".

Chelsea agreed an option to either loan Higuain for a further 12 months, at a cost of £15.5million, or sign him permanently for £31m at the end of his current loan, although it is unclear whether or not a Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban would prevent either scenario.

Chelsea FC now find themselves in sixth place in the Premier League table heading into this weekend's round of games.
