Football Twitter has had a field day after Chelsea were linked with a bizarre move for Stoke City striker Peter Crouch by the Telegraph.
For the full details of that rumour, click here. The report was published by Sam Wallace and John Percy, two well respected football journalists who know their stuff. This is, unfortunately, actually happening, the Premier League champions are chasing Peter Crouch.
Forget the recent shortfalls of Alvaro Morata and Antonio Conte’s lack of trust in Michy Batshuayi, Crouch is not the answer. He is 36-years-old and past his best, a club of Chelsea’s stature ought to be aiming higher in their pursuit of offensive reinforcements.
Twitter appears to agree with us. Football Twitter in particular has developed a reputation of reacting hilariously to bizarre incidents or outrageous reports – they have done so once again with this Crouch to Chelsea rumour.
Here’s some of the best tweets from what has been an entertaining reaction from football Twitter:
Come on Chelsea – make this Peter Crouch deal happen! Forget Alexis Sanchez, this is the deal we all want to see. #crouchforchelsea
