Stoke City striker Peter Crouch is believed to be a transfer target for reigning Premier League champions Chelsea.

Chelsea have reportedly expressed an interest in Stoke City striker Peter Crouch.

The Blues are believed to be in the market for a tall target man this month to alleviate pressure on Alvaro Morata.

West Ham United forward Andy Carroll was linked with the West London club but a long-term injury layoff has reportedly prompted Antonio Conte to look elsewhere.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea have now focused their attention on Crouch and have made Stoke aware of their interest.

The 36-year-old, a former England international, was due to be out of contract in the summer but penned an extension at the bet365 Stadium in November.

Crouch, who joined Stoke in 2011, has made 186 appearances for the Potters and netted 49 goals in all competitions.
