Loan striker mulling over permanent move to Upton Park.
Liverpool have accepted an offer of £15million from West Ham for Andy Carroll, with the striker now weighing up a permanent move to Upton Park, according to the Telegraph.
The 24-year-old has just completed a season on loan with West Ham, and manager Sam Allardyce is keen to tie down the 24-year-old on a permanent basis, after being impressed by his performances this year.
However, despite his improved form, Carroll is said to be uncertain about joining a club that cannot offer him European football, and may wait to see if any other teams show an interest in his services.
The former Newcastle man is unlikely to feature for Liverpool again, as Brendan Rodgers has made it clear that Carroll does not fit into his plans next season.
The Reds are keen to make back a decent chunk of the £35million they spent on the England international in 2011, and will then look to invest in some new attacking players to take the goal-scoring burden off star striker Luis Suarez.
West Ham may also look at another targets upfront if they do not land Carroll, with Stoke City’s Peter Crouch and Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku both being linked with the club.
