Sevilla confident of loan for Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi

However, the Blues' struggles in front of goal have been well-documented, with Chelsea having been held to three successive goalless draws in all competitions. Alvaro Morata is going through a serious dip in form and Antonio Conte has never shown any trust in backup striker Michy Batsuayi who has an excellent minutes-to-goal ratio.

Carroll has managed to score just two goals in 14 appearances this season, and has a total of 32 goals in 128 outings since arriving for £15million from Liverpool.

In return, the report suggests Moyes may ask for the Blues to include Belgium global Batshuayi in some form of loan swap deal, with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte prepared to listen to offers for the 24-year-old, who has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge since his £33.2 million move from Marseille back in July 2016.

'We are talking about a player who, recently, had a bad injury in his ankle and surgery, ' said Conte.

The 24-year old striker looks destined for a loan move this month and it's too early to talk about possible replacements that may or may not be signed in January.

But the Spaniard, beaten by Roger Federer in a classic final 12 months ago, spoke positively about his preparation. Play on that court begins with a matchup between women's No. 7 seed Jelena Ostapenko and Francesca Schiavone.

Granted, on his day, Carroll is a major threat in the air and he remains one of the finest target-men in the Premier League.

Chelsea are said to be interested in West Ham United's Andy Carroll, but they should walk away for the price they have been quoted.

Another alternative for the Norwich game would be for Conte to start 17-year old academy starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi who scored a hat-trick at the weekend for Chelsea's under-23 side in a 5-0 rout of Sunderland.

Former Stoke forward Marko Arnautovic and midfielder Manuel Lanzini, meanwhile, have courted interest from opposition clubs following a string of impressive displays.
