Giants reportedly considering shock loan move for West Ham star

Chelsea are reportedly considering a loan move for West Ham striker Andy Carroll as their woes in front of goal continue.

The Blues were held to a third consecutive goalless draw this weekend for the first time in the clubs history by a 10-man Leicester City side while no team in the top seven of the Premier League has scored fewer goals than them this season.

Antonio Conte is keen to strengthen his options in attack especially up front with Alvaro Morata struggling for form recently.

Conte is still not confident about the abilities of Michy Batshuayi and tried to bring in Fernando Llorente as a backup option during the summer, only to lose out to Tottenham.

Carroll is not an ideal long-term option for the Blues but at 28-years-old, he has plenty of experience and is also a proven scorer in the English top flight so he could be a decent short-term option.
