Former footballer Peter Crouch is reportedly subject of a "big-money offer" to appear on this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Former England and Liverpool striker Peter Crouch is reportedly being courted for this year's edition of Strictly Come Dancing.

The 40-year-old - capped 42 times for the Three Lions - ended his playing career two years ago and has since been working as a pundit and podcast host for the BBC.

Over the last month, Crouch has also hosted a Euro 2020 discussion show, Crouchy's Year-Late Euros: Live, and is in the process of filming a new documentary series focussing on non-league side Dulwich Hamlet.

According to The Sun, Crouch, who stands at 6'7", could also have another project on the table later this year if he accepts a "big-money offer" to appear on Strictly.

"Peter is hugely popular and would be a phenomenal signing," a source told the newspaper.

"The casting team were especially keen because he had such a high profile during the Euros.

"Taller men have struggled but he would stand out a mile on the dancefloor."

Crouch's wife Abbey Clancy previously appeared on the show and won in 2013.
