TRANSFER RUMOR: PETER CROUCH BECOMES A SHOCK TRANSFER TARGET FOR CHELSEA

530 views

The telegraph is reporting that Chelsea football club has made inquiries about Stoke City striker Peter Crouch as they cast their net ever wider to find a back-up to the unreliable goal scoring of Alvaro Morata and his current understudy Michy Batshuayi over this transfer window.

 

Crouch, who turns 37 this month, is one of a list of names the club had in mind for this January transfer window, including Andy Caroll who suffered an injury on Thursday and would be supposedly out for a month.

 

The former England international signed a one-year contract extension at Stoke in November, with an option for another year, and has returned to the first team amid their recent problems and Mark Hughes’ sacking in their bid to escape relegation.

 

Ideally Chelsea would like a loan until the end of the season, but even if Stoke were prepared to let Crouch go after seven years at the club, they would first need a replacement who is equally as tall as him.
