Striker may go elsewhere for European football.
West Ham United captain Kevin Nolan fears that Andy Carroll may reject a move to the club in favour of going elsewhere to play European football next season, The Daily Star reports.
Carroll has impressed at Upton Park this season, scoring seven goals in 24 appearances to help the club to a respectable mid-table finish and manager Sam Allardyce has made no secret about wanting to tie him down to a longer deal.
However, club captain and former Newcastle teammate Kevin Nolan has expressed his doubts over whether a move will actually go ahead as he believes Carroll may have his head turned by European football.
“Andy is a clever lad, he knows he has got to play football,” he said.
“If he gets offered a club in the Champions League or the Europa League, then he has got to make the decision.
“I know he has enjoyed his time here, you can see that on the pitch. He gets on well with all the lads, so we will see what happens.”
Liverpool are reported to be keen to offload the 24-year-old for a fee of around £17 million but the Hammers are apparently keen to lower them down to £10 million. However, with Spurs and Monaco interested the east Londoners may miss out him altogether.
