Andy Carroll ankle injury could scupper Chelsea move and leave West Ham short for four months

Andy Carroll’s chances of securing a move to Chelsea this month appear to have been dashed after a scan is understood to have shown that the West Ham United striker has an ankle injury which may even require surgery. Carroll was scanned by West Ham on Thursday morning after being unable to train and the results highlighted a problem. Carroll is therefore expected to be out for between four to six weeks but further medical assessment is needed to decide the appropriate treatment. The worst case scenario would mean the 29-year-old has to go under the knife which might rule him out of action for between three and four months. Carroll is wanted by Chelsea and although they are yet to make a formal offer there has been an expectation of a bid in the coming days. West Ham were resistant to Chelsea’s attempts to take Carroll on loan until the end of the season – even if they were also willing to send Michy Batshuayi in the opposite direction. Instead West Ham were willing to listen to offers to buy Carroll, who has 18 months left on his contract, and a bid of around £20 million would probably have been acceptable. In total, including add-ons, West Ham paid Liverpool £18.5m for Carroll whose career at the club has been blighted by injury. Batshuayi has been a West Ham target for some time and they were interested in the Belgium striker before he joined Chelsea. The 24-year-old was watched by West Ham manager David Moyes during Chelsea’s FA Cup third-round replay against Norwich City on Wednesday when he scored before being substituted. It is understood that Moyes was prepared to allow Carroll to leave in exchange for Batshuayi who is still expected to go out on loan this month if a replacement can be found. Carroll had been keen on a move to Chelsea Credit: Getty images Carroll is understood to have wanted to make the move to Chelsea and is said to be devastated after suffering yet another injury. The England centre-forward scored his first goals of the season for West Ham as he helped them come from behind to beat West Bromwich Albion two weeks ago. But he was not in West Ham’s match-day squad for Tuesday night’s FA Cup third-round replay against Shrewsbury Town. West Ham are still hoping to offload one of their forwards – probably either Diafra Sakho, who was wanted by Crystal Palace last week before that deal cooled, or Javier Hernández – as they try tore-balance their squad with Moyes targeting signings in midfield. West Ham remain in talks to try to sign the Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario on loan but he has other options. Before Carroll’s injury two forwards were expected to leave. January 2018 transfer window The development means it would be highly unlikely that Chelsea would follow through their interest in trying to sign Carroll before the transfer window closes at the end of this month. Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte wants to improve his strike-force and appears to have little faith in Batshuayi to provide adequate back up for record signing Alvaro Morata who has struggled of late.

Chelsea approach West Ham about signing Andy Carroll on permanent deal

West Ham United are braced for a bid for Andy Carroll after Chelsea opened talks over a move for the striker, who missed the FA Cup third-round replay with Shrewsbury Town that Reece Burke won with an extra-time goal. Chelsea are desperate to boost head coach Antonio Conte’s striking options and have made Carroll one of their surprise targets. But Chelsea are also understood to have made approaches for other forwards as they seek to land competition for Alvaro Morata after going three games without scoring. Sevilla want to sign Michy Batshuayi on loan, but Chelsea will not sanction his release until they get a replacement – either on loan or permanently. West Ham have made it clear they are not prepared to sanction a loan deal for Carroll, who has 18 months remaining on his £90,000-a-week contract, and Chelsea appear to have taken that on board by signalling their willingness to discuss a permanent move.

Without Carroll, West Ham could not find a way past Shrewsbury during 90 minutes, but 21-year-old defender Burke netted his first goal for the club in the 112th minute to clinch a fourth-round tie against either Bournemouth or Wigan. Sources have suggested that West Ham will listen to offers of £20 million for Carroll, but manager David Moyes insisted he had not spoken to the club’s owners over the player’s future. “Chelsea have not made contact with me,” said Moyes. “If they have made contact with someone else, I don’t know about it. At the moment Andy has an ankle injury. He had an injection 10 days ago and we’re hoping he will be training soon.”

At the moment Andy has an ankle injury. He had an injection 10 days ago and we’re hoping he will be training soon.” Moyes made seven changes from the West Ham team that had beaten Huddersfield Town so impressively in the Premier League for the visit of Shrewsbury. But his much-changed side were booed at half-time, full-time, when a number of West Ham fans appeared to leave, and at half-time in extra-time by those who stayed as they struggled to break down their lower-league opponents. Manuel Lanzini was the stand-out name in West Ham’s starting line-up and it was the Argentine who had the host’s first effort of the night with a shot just over the crossbar. It was not hard to spot the Premier League loanee in League One Shrewsbury Town’s line-up, as goalkeeper Dean Henderson wore black leggings under his shorts. Henderson is with Shrewsbury from Manchester United and the 20-year-old needed to hold on to a mishit Arthur Masuaku cross as it sailed towards his goal. The visitors’ first moment of note came when Burke was forced to make a challenge at full stretch to make sure striker Sefan Payne could not find his way past the West Ham defence. Lanzini won a corner with a shot that was deflected out of play, but the West Ham performance was as flat as the atmosphere inside the London Stadium. Stefan Payne battles ahead of Angelo Ogbonna Credit: AP Photo/Alastair Grant West Ham’s attempts to make a faster start to the second period were held up by an early injury to Andre Ayew, but the forward was able to continue. Henderson did well to get up higher than Toni Martinez to palm a dangerous cross away and the goalkeeper also managed to dribble around the West Ham man to get himself out of trouble – much to the delight of the Shrewsbury fans. Ayew had a shot deflected over the bar, following a strong run, and the West Ham fans thought they had been awarded a penalty when Lanzini went down in the box, but referee Jeremy Simpson had awarded a goal-kick. Lanzini then tried his luck from long range just after the hour mark, but his rising drive sailed into the away end. West Ham had been well on top after the restart, but they were almost caught on the break when Reece Oxford’s sloppy pass was touched into the path of Payne by Jon Nolan. Payne raced towards goal and only had Joe Hart to beat, but the England international spread himself well and managed to stop the Shrewsbury striker’s shot. Toni Martinez wastes a late chance in normal time Credit: Arfa Griffiths/West Ham United via Getty Image Moyes reacted by sending on Marko Arnautovic and Mark Noble, in place of Oxford, to try to avoid the threat of extra-time or a shock. Martinez tried to flick in a Lanzini free-kick with his head, but Henderson gathered and Sam Byram bombed forwards on a couple of occasions, but Arnautovic could not quite connect with one of his crosses. As the threat of extra-time loomed, Martinez blasted over from a tight angle when he may have been wiser to cross and Arnautovic fired into the side-netting. The West Ham fans who decided to leave at the end of 90 minutes missed Burke’s first senior goal for the club that came after Arnautovic had hooked the ball over his head.
