Andy Carroll refusing to train as he pushes for Chelsea move

Andy Carroll refusing to train as he pushes for Chelsea move

"Getting to a certain age where people are supposed to be retiring has made me hungrier", he told BBC Radio Stoke last summer.

"I think there's more out there that'll score more goals because they'll get a lot of chances and really push Morata and that's what he needs".

Crouch - who turns 37 this month - only signed a one-year contract extension with the Potters in November, so any deal to lure him away from the Bet 356 Stadium could prove problematic. However, it all seems rather odd to see the Premier League holders desperately scrabbling about for a B-Grade centre-forward.

The former England global - who turns 37 on January 30 - is wanted by Chelsea as cover for Alvaro Morata as Antonio Conte is willing to let Belgian Michy Batshuayi leave.

The Blues will not be adding Andy Carroll to their armoury before the end of January.

West Ham boss David Moyes was at Chelsea's FA Cup third-round replay win over Norwich on Wednesday but Sevilla are growing increasingly confident of signing the Belgian, who has struggled to cement a place in Conte's plans.

Conte is also reportedly considering a move for Tottenham's Fernando Llorente - per the Independent - but has also set his sights on Crouch. Federation Internationale de Football Association later found out that Traore had played for Chelsea in a non-competitive game more than two years before the transfer was officially announced in 2014. The Premier League defending champions could attract sanctions, including a transfer ban, the report said.
