West Ham United will demand £20m for Andy Carroll this month, according to Sky Sports News.

Chelsea are showing a major interest in Andy Carroll – although they are yet to lodge a formal bid – and West Ham will consider selling him permanently if the Blues match his valuation.

Antonio Conte wants Carroll to replace Michy Batshuayi at Chelsea and provide competition for places with Alvaro Morata, who is struggling with his form at the moment.

The Hammers could ask for Batshuayi as part of the deal to sell Carroll to Chelsea but Sevilla are also keen on the Belgian and are confident of completing this move.

Carroll has been plagued with injuries during his time at West Ham and he has been limited to just a few games this season.

The 29-year-old has scored two goals this campaign – both of which came in a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion recently – and he has been sidelined for the last three matches.

West Ham bought the 9-cap England international from Liverpool for £15m back in 2009 and are now hoping to make a profit on him.

The physical centre forward has 25 goals in the Premier League for West Ham in 86 games but could now be set to depart.
