Roy Hodgson is rumoured to be considering an ambitious swoop for Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll as news filters through about a number of St James’ Park players who are unhappy with the sacking of Chris Hughton.

There is talk of a potential dressing room revolt following the axing of Hughton and Roy Hodgson, who is on the look out for new attacking options, is apparently readying a potential move for the England International. The 21 year old Gateshead born front man may have only recently signed a new five year deal but he is so angered by Mike Ashley’s decision to sack a manager who had the respect of the entire dressing room and as a result may consider leaving the north-east club.

Liverpool are very keen to bring in new striking options that will help take the goalscoring burden off the shoulders of goal machine Fernando Torres and a move for Carroll would be a very wise one, not least because he could well be an excellent foil for the Spaniard.

Andy Carroll has had a good season thus far scoring nine goals to follow up from his useful return of 19 goals last term. Mike Ashley is also rumoured to be looking to offload a player or two to help balance the club’s books and the powerfully built striker is thought to be their most bankable asset and is valued at around £15m a fee that Liverpool’s new owners NESV would probably be more than happy to pay given the potential shown by the youngster who won his first senior England cap last month against France.
