Chelsea fans are anxious about how little activity is going on at the bridge despite already signing Ross Barkley this month as their inconsistent side needs to be bolstered with a Champions League clash against Barcelona on the horizon and a long run-in with four competitions to contend with.
That figure would be higher if it was not for the twenty-nine year old's constant struggles with injury, with him playing more than half his sides league games in just two of the five full seasons he has spent at the club.
Regardless of his measly goal tally this season, ex-West Ham captain Nigel Reo-Coker hopes Chelsea are thwarted to their bid to sign Carroll this month.
Sky sources understand the striker, whom Blues boss Antonio Conte wants to sign on loan this month, will be out for about a month with the problem. However, how many proven Premier League powerhouse forwards are there out there?
Bellamy was also critical of Carroll's game. Many football pundits try their best to offer a positive appraisal of a former teammate, but Bellamy was brutally honest.
"I wouldn't say "laid-back", Bellamy said. Some of the injuries are that he doesn't look after himself.

Never seen him have a good game. I felt that is always the case with Andy. He doesn't have the mentality or drive to be a top player, to be at Chelsea levels or be at Liverpool for more than one season.
"I saw Jordan Henderson going through a hard period and he trained and trained".
"I prefer to have players who are very happy to stay here than to have players that are unhappy, because when you are unhappy you transfer this to the other players, to me, to my staff", Conte was reported as saying by ESPN on 2 January.
"I know nothing about it".
"And I find Andy a bit like Chris and we had a lot of ball players at the time - get it and get in behind and play - he is a bit like him. I was surprised he was linked to Chelsea".
