The injury of Andy Carroll at club West Ham led to an end of the talks regarding the deal, while a transfer for Edin Dzeko of Roma has been touted, as well. Lampard used to play with Crouch, the Stoke star, for England, and has said that he would like to see the 36 years old player to make a return to Stamford Bridge.
While speaking to talkSPORT, Lampard said that it will be interesting to find out if Chelsea will bring back get Crouch or not. He added that he loves “Crouchy”, because he thinks that the player is a great lad, and feels that this will be a great move for him. He further mentioned that Peter has had an amazing career, and mentions that he wants good things to happen to good players, and he considers Crouch as one of the good ones.
If the opportunity for Crouch to move to Chelsea presents itself, and he hoes there for six months, then it will be a fair deal for Crouch, according to Lampard. He admits that even other players of the same standard as Crouch are not really permanent options for Chelsea, and mentioned that he is like a short-term option, or a Plan B for the team, because the team has some obvious issues with the number of goals they have scored recently, and hence, they are currently in a place where they are n urgent need to make some changes. But, Lampard thinks that the January transfer window is the correct time to enforce such changes.
