Gonzalo Higuain reveals the Chelsea player he is most excited to play with

Chelsea new star Gonzalo Higuain is thrilled to have joined such a talented team, though there is one player he is especially looking forward to seeing: Old Napoli teammate Jorginho.

“It was my best year as a player and he’s a wonderful midfielder who contributed to that,” Higuain told Chelsea’s official website.

“He’s also a very good friend of mine so it’s a real pleasure to once more be joining up with him, and I hope we can achieve great things together again.”

Beyond Jorginho, Higuain already knows a number of the Chelsea squad, such as Marcos Alonso and countryman Willy Caballero, and jumped at the chance to join a team stacked with talent.

“It is a team that can really achieve great things with a wonderful coach and must have the conviction to be fighting in every tournament that they participate in. I’m really excited to be here playing with these players to have the opportunity to win titles and to get back into the Champions League.”
