With Chelsea struggling in the striking department, rumours are rife that Chelsea have tabled a £50m bid for Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain which was rejected by the Serie A club.
With the likes of Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba struggling to find the back of the net, Higuain would be a perfect fit, but Mourinho says he is no surprised by Napoli’s rejection.
“Napoli want to win the Scudetto, they want to win the Europa League. I don't believe they're interested in selling Higuain,” said Mourinho before adding that acquiring a striker was not a top priority for the team.
“This squad is good enough for my first season, and for the objectives of the first season.
“We're building a new team.
“I think the fans trust the club, I think they trust me, and they know we're building a team for another period of seven, eight years.”
Chelsea currently occupy third place on the league table with 43 points from 20 games, one adrift of second placed Manchester City and two points behind Arsenal.
Chelsea are next in action on Sunday in an FA Cup tie against Derby county.
