Chelsea FC are keen to push through a deal to sign Andy Carroll from West Ham, according to reports in the British media
Chelsea FC have made contact with West Ham United about the possibility of signing Andy Carroll in the January transfer window, according to reports in the British media.
Sky Sports is reporting that the Blues have contacted their London rivals with the “intent” of wrapping up a deal to land the 29-year-old this month.
The same report says that Chelsea want to sign a back-up striker for Alvaro Morata after Michy Batshuayi struggled to prove himself to manager Antonio Conte.
The story says that the Blues are out to try and strengthen their attacking options this month and they also showed an interest in signing Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.
The 29-year-old Carroll has scored two goals in 13 Premier League games so far this season for Wes tHam.
Chelsea have already been busy in the January transfer window, having wrapped up a deal to sign midfielder Ross Barkley from Everton earlier in the month.
The west London side won the Premier League title in style under Antonio Conte last season but they did not have the distraction of European football last term.
The Blues return to Premier League action on Saturday with a trip to Norwich City as they look to bounce back from their goalless draw with Leicester last weekend.
