AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli has labeled former team-mate and Chelsea star Gonzalo Higuain the best striker in the world.
Higuain spent the first six months of the season on loan in Milan but only managed to score six goals in 15 games.
His form was heavily criticized and he eventually left Italy to join Chelsea on loan until the end of the current season.
The 31-year-old has scored two goals in his first three matches in England and Romagnoli expects him to carry on shining in the Premier League.
He told Calciomercato: “I still think he is the best striker in the world. I am sorry he decided to leave but we respect his decision. He is a friend of mine and if he is happy, I am ok with it. “Now we have other players that won’t make us regret his departure.”
