Today's Transfer Rumour Involving Andy Carroll Is The Strangest In Years

Today's Transfer Rumour Involving Andy Carroll Is The Strangest In Years

The annual cycle of Andy Carroll tends to involve being out injured for 11 months of the year, before returning to score a smattering of goals right before an important transfer window, perhaps with the sole objective of earning himself some suitors.

The 28-year-old has had another injury-plagued season, starting just eight games.

Some even suggested that he should go to the World Cup later in the year.

The striker has been frustrated at West Ham and the Blues are thinking about a potential move to sign the 28-year-old England global in the winter transfer window.

Meanwhile, the former Everton and Manchester United manager has admitted that he has "no idea" about the recent speculation linking Carroll with a move to Chelsea.

Blues boss Antonio Conte is desperate to sign another back-up for Alvaro Morata as Michy Batshuayi has struggled to impress this season.

Morata himself was subject to severe criticism following his display against Arsenal.

Rather than batting down the rumours, he typically responded: "I have no idea about that".

Who knows, given his grim performance against the Gunners on Wednesday night, when the Spanish sharpshooter was anything but, Morata's place in the Chelsea line-up could be under threat if Carroll arrives this month.

Is he good enough to play in the Champions League for one of the biggest clubs in Europe?
