David Moyes has responded to ‘shock’ claims that Chelsea want to sign Andy Carroll.
The Sun claimed on Friday that reigning Premier League champions Chelsea have put Carroll on a shortlist of strikers who could provide ‘back-up’ to Alvaro Morata.
Southampton are also targeting the West Ham forward, whose contract expires in summer 2019.
But Mike McGrath reports that Chelsea are ‘considering’ a move for Carroll, while some outlets have proposed a potential loan move.
Moyes was asked about the speculation on Friday after West Ham’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham, with his response one of surprise.
“I have no idea about that,” said the Scot.
Poor Michy Batshuayi.
