Tottenham fans take to Twitter to distance themselves from Andy Carroll rumours

Tottenham fans take to Twitter to distance themselves from Andy Carroll rumours

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with pretty much every striker under the sun in the last few years, however, this particular story is the icing on the cake for Tottenham fans. According to The Sun, the Lilywhites are lining up a £2 million move for Andy Carroll, who could be allowed to leave West Ham if Marko Arnautovic stays.

As far as ridiculous transfer stories go, this one is right up there. Tottenham Hotspur have become a club who have put a massive emphasis on promoting and signing young players to develop. However, Andy Carroll is far from young. The striker is 30-years-old now and struggles to keep himself fit on a week-by-week basis, which makes this transfer rumour even more ludicrous.

It was around this time last season that Chelsea were linked frantically with almost every target man in the country, and this time it looks like Spurs will be the same. However, the Lilywhites would much rather have a window where they go away empty-handed than bring in a player like the injury-prone Andy Carroll, especially seeing as he’s scored just four goals since the 2016/17 season.

The Lilywhites would be livid if their side signed Andy Carroll and would rather the window ended now if he;s the best they’ll get.
