Chelsea now odds-on to sign Andy Carroll from West Ham

Chelsea could be on the verge of signing West Ham United striker Andy Carroll, according to our traders.

Carroll was previously 2/1 to join the Blues but those odds have been slashed to 4/5 today.

It would be a huge move for the former Newcastle United striker and may put him in contention for England’s World Cup squad.

Across the capital, Arsenal could also bring in Paris Saint-Germain ace Julian Draxler.

The Gunners are 5/4 to sign the German this month.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Plenty of eyebrows will be raised at this one, but Carroll to Chelsea is proving a popular bet with punters, so we’ve been left with no option but to slash odds of exactly that happening.”
