England striker could find a role for himself on the Anfield bench.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is ready to welcome back Andy Carroll to the club according to The Sun.
But only if the England striker accepts a place on the Anfield bench.
Carroll has been playing at West Ham this year where is on a season long loan deal.
He has played a key role in Sam Allardyce’s team but has reportedly not done enough to persuade the Hammers to bring Carroll to the club on a permanent basis.
Liverpool are reportedly looking for a fee in the region of £15 million for Carroll and it appears West Ham are keen to explore other options.
Carroll may now be given a chance to redeem his career at Liverpool, where he previously struggled to impress following his £35 million move from Newcastle in January 2011.
But Rodgers has warned the Geordie hitman he will most likely be used as an impact substitute. The Anfield boss currently has Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge and Fabio Borini at his disposal and Carroll has been warned he will only be welcomed back to pre-season training if he accepts his place in the pecking order.
Carroll may well choose to pass up the offer and instead search for first team football as he looks to cement a place in Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the World Cup next summer in Brazil.
