Chelsea plan £7m bid for Newcastle youngster

BBC Sport reports that Chelsea have been impressed by the 21-year-old’s performances for the Magpies last season.

Carroll scored 19 goals in 35 games for Newcastle in the Championship last season and helped them win promotion back into the Premier League.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is keen to bring in a young striker this summer as both Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba are over 30-years-old.
