Andy Carroll rumored to be joining French team Amiens SC
Former England star Andy Carroll is reportedly in talks to make a surprise move to French club Amiens SC. The 34-year-old striker is currently playing for League One side Reading, where he has been since last September.
Striker could be leaving Reading soon
Carroll's potential move to Amiens SC could see him leaving Reading, as he is said to be in talks to "conclude the deal." This would be Carroll's first time playing outside of England, as he has previously played for clubs such as West Ham, Newcastle, Liverpool, West Brom, and Preston North End.
Fans react with surprise to the rumored transfer
Fans on social media have expressed their surprise and called the potential transfer "random." Many Twitter users expressed their astonishment at the move, with one declaring it the "random signing of the year."
Carroll to potentially become teammates with Gaël Kakuta
If the transfer goes through, Carroll will join former Chelsea youngster Gaël Kakuta at Amiens SC. Carroll initially joined Reading on a four-month contract but impressed enough to earn a longer deal. He scored nine goals in 31 league appearances for the club, although they were unable to avoid relegation.
In a video that surfaced earlier this month, Carroll was seen dancing at a house party with DJ Kitty McPaws.
