Anfield forward Upton Park bound.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers stated his willingness to loan out to Andy Carroll some weeks ago and now it appears that a move to Upton Park is on the cards.
Sam Allardyce has been linked with a myriad of potential ‘marquee’ signings this summer but the addition of Andy Carroll may well surpass those he has previously targeted and if he can get the former Newcastle United back to his best then he may well provide the firepower that helps to keep the Hammers clear of the danger zone.
The chance to reunite with former team-mate, and close friend, Kevin Nolan may well have a motivating factor in any decision to move to East London, as would the chance to secure regular first team football.
The 23 year old found himself forced out of the Liverpool first team last term due to a run of horrid form and Liverpool’s capture of Italian international Fabio Borini would clearly have further hampered Carroll’s ability to get in Rodgers’ starting eleven.
As the sources above state, a £2m deal will seemingly be paid for the season long loan spell followed by a potential first refusal to sign the England international for a fee of £17m, still less than half the £35m paid by Liverpool for the Gateshead born forward 18 months ago.
