“It didn’t seem like it was gonna be that easy to get Gonzalo off the ground and running coming in in January, but I don’t think that is a great example of just how he can fit in the Premier League.”

Higuain has drawn shock links to West Ham United recently after the English side bid farewell to Marko Arnautovic last week. Manuel Pellegrini is on the lookout for a quality number nine and Higuain certainly fits the bill.

“I actually thought it made sense,” Goldberg added. “Now, it makes sense in terms of the fit, in my opinion, but I would never expect in my wildest dreams to think about Gonzalo Higuain at West Ham. So that part was obviously very surprising, but I think if you think about it a lot deeper it makes sense.

“When Gonzalo Higuain came over to Chelsea last January, I definitely thought he was a good fit for the Premier League profile wise. I thought his game really would profile well into Chelsea, but more important into the league.

“And despite him not having the greatest time with Chelsea, I don’t think that’s because I was wrong or anyone was wrong by thinking that he would fit well in the league. I still think his game profiles well there.”
