Gianfranco Zola has backed new Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain to emulate the successful transition he made from Serie A to the Premier League.
Higuain completed a loan move to Chelsea from Juventus on Wednesday that will see him remain in London until the of the season, with the club holding the option to extend the deal.
Zola, who is now assistant coach to Maurizio Sarri at Stamford Bridge, arrived at Chelsea in 1996 from Parma, before establishing himself as a club legend during his seven-year spell in the Premier League.
“It is exactly the same question they posed when I came over here and it’s the same question they pose (all foreign) players when they come over here,” Zola said on Friday.
“We know that he’s coming from a different league, maybe a league where the intensity and the rhythms are lower than the Premier League. But we are also talking about a player that has scored not only in Italy, but everywhere.
“He’s scored in the Champions League, so we are talking about a top player.”
