Chelsea are said to be interested in bringing Peter Crouch to the club after a reported move for Andy Carroll fell though when the West Ham player was ruled out for a month with an ankle injury.

Antonio Conte’s increasingly desperate search for a targetman has apparently led him to Stoke City, although the club appear reluctant to let the 36-year-old leave so soon after the arrival of new manager Paul Lambert.

The news has sent the world of football into a tizzy with a mixture of excitement and surprise expressed by rival fans.

These were the best of the jokes and tweets as Chelsea are rumoured to be targeting Peter Crouch in the January transfer window:

If Peter Crouch comes to Chelsea I will stand outside Stamford bridge in a full Chelsea kit for an hour and do the robot.

If Peter Crouch knocks back Chelsea they could make a move for Carlton Cole.

Picture the scene. Peter Crouch joins Chelsea. He bangs fifteen goals in between now and May. Off he goes to the World Cup. Scores the winner against Germany in the final. Retires. His work is complete.

Finally Peter Crouch can return to his home planet and rest.

Realistically what can Stoke demand for Peter Crouch like? Twenty quid and a ladder so they can replace his ability to get the biscuit tin down from the top shelf?
