West Ham fans react as Andy Carroll is linked with Chelsea move

According to reports in the Daily Mail, West Ham United striker Andy Carroll is a January target for Chelsea, and Irons fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.

The Daily Mail says that the Blues have enquired about taking the 28-year-old on loan for the rest of the season as Antonio Conte looks to provide more competition for Alvaro Morata in attack, and it could leave the east London outfit with a decision to make.

Carroll has once again been plagued with injury issues this season, although he did score both goals – including a last-gasp winner – in their vital 2-1 win against fellow strugglers West Bromwich Albion at the London Stadium on Tuesday night.

West Ham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the story, and while one simply said “please take him”, another said “I’ll drive Carroll there”.
