Tottenham will attempt to persuade Newcastle United to sell their young striker Andy Carroll to the White Hart Lane side by offering Alan Pardew a potentially tempting player plus cash exchange for the England international, who has been in fine form this season.
Harry Redknapp will offer the Magpies Robbie Keane, David Bentley and Niko Kranjcar in return for the 21 year old front man or if they prefer, a straight cash offer of around £22m. Though St James’s Park supporters would not want to see Carroll leave the club, Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley may well consider offers to help balance the books.
Redknapp has a large squad and can therefore afford to lose some players in such a deal and chairman Daniel Levy hopes to trim the club’s wage bill and will not allow the Tottenham boss to bring in new players until he has reined in spending. The three players in question have amassed just four Premier League starts between them, displaying just how much strength in depth the north London club possesses.
However Harry Redknapp has expressed concerns over the form of his strikers who have all failed to perform this term and have left the club’s midfield to shoulder the goalscoring burden.
Andy Carroll has scored 11 times in 18 Premier League starts, form that has led to him being a firm part of Fabio Capello’s England plans.
