Chelsea are reportedly interested in West Ham striker Andy Carroll but former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise believes the 29-year-old striker isn’t the answer for Chelsea.

“He is a handful on his day, he really is, but no I do not think he is to be honest (the answer for Chelsea),” Wise said on Sky Sports.

“The reason being is he does not play enough games, he has had a lot of injuries. He is 29 years old and does not score enough goals and so therefore from that point of view, no.

“I think Chelsea like a striker who runs in behind and stretches teams and he will not be that person if they play with one up front, he will be more of a hold-up.

“There are more out there that score more goals, as they will get a lot of chances in play, and really push Morata. And that is what he needs.

“And Andy won’t push him as far because he will only play a certain amount of games and I think you want a player who is really going to push Morata, score goals and put him under pressure.”
