Chelsea now eyeing Crouch

People are making the same joke about Chelsea's potential transfer ban Football

It is believed the transfer would cost Chelsea somewhere in the region of £44million, with Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi going the other way.

Reports in the last 24 hours suggest Chelsea have made inquiries regarding Stoke City's Peter Crouch.

It seems incredible that the current Premier League champions would consider him to help ease the burden on Alvaro Morata.

Although, with Conte's future in west London still uncertain come the end of this season, the club are unlikely to splash out on a top-class player for the rest of the season.

British media reports say Chelsea are desperate to boost manager Antonio Conte's attacking options and have made contact with West Ham with the intent of signing Carroll on a permanent deal.

Chelsea are lining up a stunning January move for Stoke City striker Peter Crouch after failing in their pursuit of Andy Carroll. I'm very calm about this because I'm working with my players in the right way.

However, they have yet to make contact with Dzeko, with his agent telling romagiallorossa.it : "Every time you talk about Dzeko, clubs like Chelsea, Chinese clubs, even Mexican clubs crop up".

Conte insists he is not prepared to talk about players now at other clubs however. Confident is a big word, we have to wait.

"I repeat I give my opinion to the club but as I said before the final decision is for the club". Given that the Crouch news was revealed so close to the revelation about Chelsea's potential transfer ban, you can see what football fans were thinking.

"I'm not interested in this conversation, also because this is disrespectful for my players, for the other players, for the players of the other clubs."

Conte also revealed new signing Ross Barkley is in the squad for Saturday's trip to Brighton.
