West Ham boss on ‘shock’ Chelsea interest in Carroll

Date published: Friday 5th January 2018 9:31

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.
