Chelsea in shock move for Newcastle striker Carroll

According to BBC Sport Chelsea are considering a surprise £7m swoop for Newcastle United starlet Andy Carroll. According to the BBC, the Blues were impressed with the 21-year-old's performances last season for the Toon, where his goal haul of 19 strikes in 35 games lifted Newcastle back into the Premier League at the first attempt.

Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen to add young firepower to his squad and signed Manchester City striker Daniel Sturridge last summer and is rumoured to be looking at other promising 'homegrown' stars this time around.

However, Magpies owner Mike Ashley risks the ire of Toon fans if he offloads their most highly-rated player.
