Loftus Road look to bring in yet another high-profile addition as the West London side plots advance for Anfield forward.
QPR are reportedly readying an ambitious move to capture Liverpool forward Andy Carroll. The Loftus Road side have made a number of high-profile signings this summer and the club’s co-owner is ready to finance a significant bid for the England international.
Brendan Rodgers has seemingly made it clear that the former Newcastle United man is not part of his first team plans after Liverpool accepted an earlier offer from West Ham for the powerful forward but the new Anfield boss has told the 23 year old that if he puts in improved performances then he could yet convince the former Swansea City boss’s to change his position.
However perhaps Carroll would prefer to push for first team football elsewhere, especially given his ambitions to cement a regular spot in Roy Hodgson’s England plans.
QPR are ready to offer a similar deal to that made by West Ham, with an initial fee being paid to seal a season long deal with the option to have first refusal on the permanent signing of the Gateshead born forward if Liverpool choose to offload the £35m man.
Mark Hughes has been backed by QPR’s owners with funds to improve a squad that came very close to relegation last term. The former Man City boss has signed Robert Green, Andy Johnson, Ryan Nelsen on free transfers as well as landing Junior Hoilett and Park-Ji Sung from Blackburn Rovers & Man United respectively.
Though Carroll is said to be interested in joining a side who can offer him European football he may feel that the ambition shown by the West London club is worthy of committing to a season long loan deal to.
Rodgers is said to be looking to procure further attacking options having already signed Italian Fabio Borini and Carroll may well prefer to leave for pastures new on a loan deal over spending a season warming the Liverpool bench.
