West Ham United want to sign Gonzalo Higuain this summer.
West Ham asked for Higuain at £35million
Do Roma have the ace card to trump West Ham
Captaincy? No. Game time and second chance at the Premier League? Yes
Despite an inauspicious spell at Chelsea last season signing Higuain would be quite a coup for Pellegrini.
In one season at Napoli, Higuain netted 38 goals in 42 games. That took his tally in just three seasons there to 91 in 146 matches.
After a big money move to Juventus Higuain scored 55 goals in 105 games.
He continued his goal every other game ratio on loan at Milan scoring 8 in 16 starts.
At Chelsea his record took a hit but many of his appearances came as a substitute.
But Higuain still has a phenomenal record of 295 goals from 595 games at the very top level.
