Football rumours: Wolves look to former England striker Andy Carroll

The Telegraph reports Wolves are looking at the 33-year-old free agent and former England striker Andy Carroll if they fail to sign Diego Costa due to the refusal of a work permit.

The same paper writes that 23-year-old Brighton midfielder Steven Alzate is speaking to Standard Liege over a loan deal covering the rest of the season.

Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy (30) has turned down a contract renewal offer due to being offered a lower wage than Kepa Arrizabalaga, according to the Standard. Chelsea started the season very badly, but even so, their matches are suitable for betting live, which pleases everyone except Chelsea’s fans.
