Liverpool are believed to be interested in acquiring the services of Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll as a replacement for Fernando Torres, who has been widely reported to be on the verge of joining Chelsea.

According to The Sun, the Reds will move in on the young forward with a £30 million bid and a triple-your-wages offer to prise him away from the clutches of the Tyneside outfit.

Carroll has made a seamless transition from the Championship to the Premier League, scoring 11 goals in the process. And the 22-year-old also made his debut for the senior England squad in an international friendly.

Liverpool have also been linked with deadline day moves for Aston Villa winger Ashley Young and Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam.

It appears that the chances of Fernando Torres leaving Liverpool are getting higher and higher by the minute and a move for a replacement would therefore appear to make a great deal of sense and in terms of top notch young additions for the role a move for Newcastle United striker Andy Carroll would make a great deal of sense but how likely are the St James’ Park side to sell their prized asset?

Tottenham have been trying for some weeks to land the 22 year old who has netted 11 Premier League goals this season but the top four chasing side have as yet failed to garner any interest as the Magpies have steadfastly refused any offer the North London club have made.

Clearly there is a chance that an offer of such magnitude, £30m is a lot of money, may get Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley excited but if he did agree to such a bid then there is a good chance that those supporters who do not already despise him with every fibre of their being, would change their mind and join the massed ranks soon enough.

Alan Pardew has also stated his intention to keep Carroll so I guess a lot would depend on the player himself and whether or not he would try to force an exit.
