Reports: West Ham plan Carroll swoop

11 July 2012 10:50

West Ham are plotting a move to bring Liverpool striker Andy Carroll to Upton Park on a season-long loan, according to various sources.

The 23-year-old has struggled to make a telling impact since his 35-million-pound switch from Newcastle United in January last year, and new boss Brendan Rodgers is reportedly prepared to sanction a temporary switch as he tries to implement his passing game at Anfield and switch from a 4-4-2 approach to a more modern 4-3-3.

The Hammers feel they hold an advantage over speculated interest from AC Milan given the friendship the striker shares with Kevin Nolan while the pair where at the Sports Direct Arena, but Carroll's 80,000 pounds-a-week wages are a stumbling block for the London side.

Despite Carroll's failures at Anfield so far, an upturn in form near the end of the season - netting in both the FA Cup semi-final and final - saw him claim a spot in Roy Hodgson's England squad heading to Euro 2012, where he scored against Sweden in the group stages.

Rodgers is also hoping to tie up a deal for young Italian forward Fabio Borini from Roma, along with monitoring Daniel Sturridge's situation at Chelsea.

Carroll is said to be unsure on a move to Italy, but Liverpool would rather let the striker move abroad where he cannot come back to haunt the club in the Premier League.
