Chelsea in shock Carroll link

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata

The career of Andy Carroll could be heading for another upswing this month as Chelsea have contacted West Ham with a view to signing the striker. Alvaro Morata is going through a serious dip in form and Antonio Conte has never shown any trust in backup striker Michy Batsuayi who has an excellent minutes-to-goal ratio.

Andy Carroll's move to Chelsea is still on with the Blues looking to sign the England global on loan.

The £35m fee will also bring back memories for Liverpool fans as it is the precise amount which they paid up for Carroll when they signed him from Newcastle United to replace Fernando Torres who had joined Chelsea. The inventive Spanish outlet claim that the Frenchman has offers on the table from both Chelsea and Arsenal, but that does not mean that a move to the Premier League is imminent.

Irvine says West Ham are yet to receive any offers for the 29-year-old and insists a temporary deal for the former England global is out of the question. He has scored just two Premier League goals this term; Morata has 10, Batshuayi also has two.

U.S. asks Pakistan to take action against Haqqani network, other terrorist groups
Pakistan accuses India of using Afghan soil for carrying out hostile activities against it, a charge India has dismissed. The minister said Pakistan was being made a scapegoat as the USA was not winning (the war on terror) in Afghanistan.

However, Batshuayi's current employers Chelsea aren't keen to let him leave unless a replacement is secured first.

Conte said: "We are talking about a player who, recently, had a bad injury in his ankle and surgery".

However, Conte does not want to confirm the loan deal until he has been able to add to his own squad in the transfer window.

Jose Mourinho believes Juve's £53 million-rated star is the right man to shore up his defence, although United are unlikely to firm up their interest until the summer.
