Andy Carroll wants Chelsea move as transfer talks begin

"My first task is to do the best for the team and the club".

Chelsea has not made a good start to the new year and Conte needs to rethink his strategies to give some competition to Pep's City who are the runaway leaders in the Premier League.

The club are now considering a short-term move for West Ham's Andy Carroll to act as a back-up player for when "Plan A" isn't working out like it has done a few times for Chelsea this campaign.

What seems clear is that Chelsea are indeed interested in West Ham's big centre-forward.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte is unconcerned if being substituted makes Eden Hazard unhappy, stating his priority is to win matches.

Of course, it's unlikely that Chelsea are planning to sign Carroll as a direct replacement for Alvaro Morata in a drastic answer to the problem of the Spaniard's middling form.

Chelsea are now fourth in the Premier League after their 0-0 draw with 10-man Leicester, behind Manchester United and Liverpool on goal difference.

The 20-year-old has impressed with his performances, and that has prompted London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea to express early interest in a deal for next season.

Granted, on his day, Carroll is a major threat in the air and he remains one of the finest target-men in the Premier League.

Many Chelsea fans might regard this Carroll story as another indication that Antonio Conte is poised to leave the Blues this summer.

However, Manchester United remain the favourites to land the Chilean forward, with reports suggesting that the Old Trafford club are willing to meet his wage demands of £350,000 a week.
