Chelsea's reported interest in acquiring Andy Carroll (!) from West Ham, and in a permanent transfer, even (!) after their refusal to let him go on loan, remains one of the more baffling stories in the rumour mill.

Carroll brings a 'rough-and-ready' directness; he's a scrapper from the north, a man who relishes the challenge of upstaging opposition defenders and isn't afraid to put himself about for the good of the team. I never felt that was going to be the case with Andy'.

Some of the latest transfer speculation involving Chelsea... If he is reading these reports, you can imagine him storming into the offices at the club and demanding an explanation.

The 29-year-old emerged as a surprise target for the Premier League champions earlier this month, tipped to make the switch across London either on loan or on a permanent deal.

Red Star Belgrade's Richmond Boakye is another target that the club began scouting at the start of the season, and he trained in Antonio Conte's Juventus side as a youngster.

And Sky Sports News reporter Downie has claimed that the Blues have made contact with West Ham about Carroll's availability, although an official bid has not yet been made. None of that got him and Chelsea the goals. How is Morata when measured against the former midfielder's metrics for a striker likeable by Chelsea?

This being said, Crouch is set to turn 37 soon and he's not exactly what you would call a long-term prospect.

The home win double on West Ham and the Foxes pays 5/2 which looks more solid than Carroll's ankles. The Gunners could send Olivier Giroud in the opposite direction to help complete the deal.

Chelsea have again been linked with Watford forward Richarlison.
