Chelsea have been reported recently to see West Ham United striker Andy Carroll as their best option this window and are said to have proposed a loan move to bring the 29-year old Englishman to Stamford Bridge.
The Premier League champions have struggled in front of goal in recent times as their dependence on Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard as backfired with both players not in the best goalscoring form at the moment.
The Blues are looking to bring in attacking players this month as their manager Antonio Conte is not satisfied with his options at the moment, hence their move for Carroll.
In a boost to Chelsea, reports say the offer is appealing to Andy Carroll who is said to be interested in the move.
West Ham’s stand, however, is not very clear with some reports suggesting a loan move for Michy Batshuayi as part of the deal is fine with them while others say a cash deal alone is what they want.
Chelsea, however, are not just looking at the Englishman as they have inquired about Watford’s Richarlison as well as Borussia Monchengladbach’s star man Thorgan Hazard – who is a former player of their and Eden Hazard younger brother.
Reports in the last 24 hours also say the West London club have registered an interest in Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez.
