Chelsea are ready to turn their attention to signing Stoke City’s Peter Crouch in their pursuit of a new striker, according to the Telegraph.
The reigning Premier League champions having been chasing West Ham United forward Andy Carroll though that potential deal has been scuppered following yet another injury to the former Liverpool and Newcastle United man.
Crouch, who turns thirty-seven this month only signed a new one-year deal with the option of a further year with the Potters in November.
Chelsea would be likely to want a loan deal though Stoke, who appointed Paul Lambert as their new manager last week would be keen to bring in a replacement before sanctioning such a transfer.
Crouch moved to the Bet 365 Stadium in the summer of 2011 and has since racked up over two hundred and twenty-two appearances in all competitions, scoring fifty-eight goals while he has twenty-two goals in forty-two outings for England.
