Chelsea striker Gonzalo Higuain says he would like to stay at Stamford Bridge next season.

The Argentinian player, 31, joined the Blues on loan until the end of the season from Juventus in January.

Last week, Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri said Higuain – who has scored three goals in eight Premier League appearances – “needs more time to improve”.

“I want to do as well as I can so I can be here for next season,” Higuain said in an interview to Chelsea website.

“I came here and I wanted to stay. It’s a good city, you live well and you can be relaxed but also enjoy yourself, so my intention is to stay here.”

Higuain scored twice on his home debut against Huddersfield in February, but his last goal was in the Blues’ 2-1 win over Fulham in March.

Chelsea have the option to buy him for 36m euros (£31.3m), or to extend his loan deal until June 2020 for 18m euros (£15.6m).

“I’m happy here, it’s always nice to try a new league and it’s my first taste of the Premier League, ” Higuain continued.

“Obviously it’s a period where I’m adapting but I’m hoping that, although I’ve only got a short time, I can finish well.

“The best thing we can do is qualify for the Champions League and hopefully win the Europa League too.”
