West Ham striker Andy Carroll is convinced he'll be joining Chelsea this month.
Carroll remains open to the possibility of a move across London. The attraction of playing for last season's title winners is considerable, as is the prospect of Champions League football.
With his considerable injury problems - he missed last night's FA Cup replay against Shrewsbury and has played only 86 League matches since signing from Liverpool in July 2013 for £15million - it would perhaps suit both Carroll and Chelsea if he was used sparingly and as cover for Alvaro Morata.
Geographically the move would also be reasonably seamless since he would not be required to uproot his family.
