West Ham United are plotting a loan offer to Liverpool for striker Andy Carroll, according to widespread media reports on Wednesday.
Hammers boss Sam Allarydce, who has a history of making ambitious and surprising signings from his days at Bolton Wanderers, is keen to land the 23-year-old Anfield flop, believing he can link the Geordie up once again with Kevin Nolan at Upton Park. Close friends Carroll & Nolan formed a deadly partnership together in their two seasons together in the Championship and Premier League for Newcastle United and Allardyce believes the link-up will once again get the best out of the England international.
Italian giants AC Milan are reportedly also interested in taking Carroll on loan to Serie A after it emerged that the Merseyside club are looking to offload Carroll after a disappointing 18 months since his record-breaking £35 million transfer from Newcastle in January 2010.
This week, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers failed to play down reports that Carroll could leave Liverpool that has just heightened talk that he will leave this summer.
However a close friend of Carroll’s has apparently told The Sun that he won’t be going anywhere;
“There is no chance of Andy leaving Liverpool. He is staying put.
“So AC Milan can forget it and he won’t be going back to Newcastle or joining West Ham either – on loan or otherwise.”
