Loftus Road side one of many keen on Upton Park flop.
West Ham are ready to put flop forward Andy Carroll up for sale in January according to the Daily Mail.
The east London side paid £15m for the 25 year old last summer, after an initial loan move, and will now accept as little as £8m for the injury prone England man which has alerted a number of prospective suitors.
Carroll’s former club Newcastle United are said to be interested but would only make an offer if the Gateshead born forward agreed to a wage cut, the powerful marksman earning a reported £85k a week at Upton Park.
Stoke City and QPR are also monitoring the situation with perhaps Loftus Road boss Harry Redknapp feeling such an outlay may be wise as he looks to bring in some much needed firepower to improve his side’s chances of avoiding a second relegation to the Championship in three seasons.
Hammers manager Sam Allardyce can well afford to cash in on Carroll given the immediate impact his new raft of striking talent has already made this term.
West Ham have registered a healthy total of ten goals from their opening six Premier League fixtures with Diafra Sakho, brought in from Ligue 1 side Metz, scoring in each of his last three domestic league appearances.
