Carroll completed a move from Newcastle to Liverpool on deadline day in January 2011
Believe it or not, the latest wild rumour sees West Ham striker Andy Carroll linked with a move to reigning Premier League champions Chelsea.
Of course, Carroll is no stranger to a dramatic transfer after the Newcastle-born player left his hometown club to join Liverpool on deadline day in January 2011.
His Liverpool career did not work out, however, scoring just eleven goals in 58 appearances.
Fortuantely for Carroll, he was able to revive his career with the Hammers when he secured a loan move to east London in August 2012, before making the move permanent the following summer.
Carroll has had a frustrating time being dogged by injury at West Ham but he has still managed to notch up some impressive performances.
His second-half brace in the Hammers’ victory over West Brom on Tuesday night even led to some suggesting Carroll could earn a spot in the England squad for the 2018 World Cup.
Across the capital, Antonio Conte’s side appear to be in the midst of a striker crisis with summer signing Alvaro Morata misfiring in front of goal, while Belgian Michy Batshuayi seems to be out of favour with the Blues boss.

However, Carroll to Chelsea would surely be one of the most bizarre moves to happen between two Premier League clubs in recent times.
And of course, many took to Twitter to have a laugh or cry at the rumour. Scroll down for some of the best tweets below.
