WEST HAM want Michy Batshuayi as part of any deal for Andy Carroll to go to Chelsea, according to reports.
Antonio Conte’s side have made contact with the intent of signing the Irons striker on a permanent deal.
But Sky Sports News say David Moyes will not let Carroll go for anything less than his valuation.
However, it is thought that stance could change if Batshuayi is included as part of the switch for Carroll.
However, Spanish side Sevilla remain in the hunt for the Belgian striker and are increasingly confident of securing his signature this month.
Batshuayi has tried to warm himself to Italian boss Conte but his efforts appear in vain.
Instead, the Stamford Bridge side want Carroll as another option to Alvaro Morata, who has managed ten goals in the Premier League this season.
That is half the tally of Spurs star Harry Kane, the league’s top scorer.
SunSport told you earlier this month that Carroll, who has just one full season left on his Hammers contract, was a target of Conte’s.
Conte missed out on former Swansea striker Fernando Llorente last summer.
The Spaniard moved to join Kane at Spurs.
But Carroll is a similar physical type to the Spaniard and could slot into Conte’s preferred style of play.
