French source Maxi Foot claims that big spending Ligue 1 side PSG are planning a £12m bid for Liverpool striker Andy Carroll. Carlo Ancelotti may well feel that his Parc des Princes side could do with an injection of attacking talent but one wonders if such a bid is likely to tempt the Anfield side into selling the England international.
Carroll has been branded an expensive flop having managed just six goals in 42 Premier League appearances but the Merseyside club are unlikely to accept PSG’s offer given that it’s significantly lower than the £35m they paid Newcastle United for the young forward back in January 2011.
Newly installed Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will no doubt be looking to strengthen an attack that managed just 47 Premier League goals last term but may well feel that Carroll still has a lot to offer and that any additions would be in order to back-up the big forward and Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez.
Ancelotti just missed out on a Ligue 1 title last term and will be backed financially by PSG’s Qatari owners but may well need to up this initial offer if he is to have any chance of landing the Liverpool youngster.
