Brendan Rodgers refusing to sell the striker on the cheap.
Liverpool have warned potential suitors for Andy Carroll not to expect to sign the striker on the cheap according to The Daily Mail.
The England striker has failed to establish himself at Anfield since joining the club from Newcastle for £35 million in the 2011 January transfer window.
Carroll has failed to replicate the same form he displayed for Newcastle and found himself deemed surplus to requirements following the arrival of Brendan Rodgers as manager last summer.
Rodgers reportedly has doubts about whether Carroll can adapt to the team’s high energy, passing style of football and set the player out on a season long loan deal with Sam Allardyce’ West Ham.
Carroll is enjoying some good form as the season draws to a close but the Hammers feel they are unlikely to be able to afford the £17 million asking price to turn Carroll’s move into a permanent one.
Rodgers has now warned Carroll to expect a role as an impact substitute should he return to Liverpool with the Anfield boss unwilling to sell Carroll on the cheap.
Rodgers is keen to recoup as much as possible of Liverpool’s £35 million outlay on Carroll after being told by the Liverpool hierarchy he will have just £20 million to spend on new recruits this summer.
