Chelsea Eye £15 Million Signing Of Andy Carroll From Newcastle United As Didier Drogba Replacement

Chelsea are reportedly ready to pay up to £15 million in order to sign Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll, whom they see as a potential replacement for Didier Drogba.

The Sunday Express states that Blues manager Carlo Ancelotti may make his move as early as January because a number of other top Premier League clubs are also monitoring the starlet.

As has been well documented, star striker Drogba is now 32 and cannot go on forever, meaning Chelsea are regularly linked with promising forwards as they bid to replace him for the long-term.

The story is too old to be commented.

He's 21,Very Talented,Not Expensive,Have a killer instict....Not a bad buy but I still prefer aguero over him

Aguero has more skill, but Carroll has the strength and is adapted to england.

I say he would suit Chelsea better than aguero more Physical

Yes he's more physical than aguero but aguero have a better technique and very fast and agile and not that fragile for a small player

GJ234404d ago

I dont think he would fit in well in a top club. He's suit a smaller club better

kulka4404d ago

yup but Chelsea play physical so maybe he would be more suitable as a direct replacment

Newcastle should keep hold of him. The fans love him and he's playing fantastic in the team
