Anfield striker set for Upton Park move?
Liverpool have agreed a £15m deal with West Ham for striker Andy Carroll according to the BBC.
The two sides have complete terms on a permanent sale of the England international though the 24 year old is still to agree to the move with Newcastle United also said to be taking a keen interest in the powerful forward.
Liverpool paid £35m for Carroll back in January 2011 but after managing just six goals in 44 Premier League fixtures for the Anfield side he was sent out on loan to the Upton Park side where he has enjoyed a relatively successful loan spell, scoring seven goals in 23 appearances.
Carroll certainly fits Sam Allardyce’s style of play but the Hammers boss has earmarked a move for Vitesse Arnhem hot-shot Wilfried Bony if he fails to secure Carroll on a permanent deal.
Andy Carroll will have to think long and hard about this next move knowing that regular first team football is key to his hopes of a spot in Roy Hodgson’s World Cup squad for 2014 and with no other concrete offers on the table a move to join West Ham could well be the ideal one to make.
