Chelsea are readying a bid for Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll as Carlo Ancelotti looks to add further attacking options to his misfiring Stamford Bridge side and the Italian is hopeful that an offer in the region of £25m may tempt St James’ Park owner Mike Ashley sell the club’s most prized asset.
Ancelotti is also well aware that his two first choice strikers, Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka, at 32 and 31 are entering the latter stages of their glittering careers and that the Premier League champions could do with an injection of youth in their ageing squad.
Alan Pardew has stated that he has no intention of selling England international Carroll but Chelsea may feel that if there interest in the powerfully built striker is made clear then the 21 year old may have his head turned by interest shown by the Blues and that a move to London may also tempt the youngster.
Roman Abramovich is apparently more than willing to bank roll significant moves in the transfer market to help the faltering West London side to get back on track and is more than able to fund a move for a player with great potential and good potential sell on value.
