The England international has spent this season on loan at Upton Park, where he has impressed with seven goals in 24 appearances for Sam Allardyce’s side.
The Hammers boss has made no secret of his desire to sign the 24-year-old permanently this summer but the player is yet to decide if he wants to move to east London permanently.
Carroll cost former Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish £35m on January transfer deadline day 2011 but was instantly deemed surplus to requirements at Anfield when Brendan Rodgers arrived on Merseyside last summer.
Carroll has made a total of 58 appearances, scoring seven times, since arriving Anfield but has rarely been at his best in the red of Liverpool.
The forward’s former club Newcastle are also interested in re-signing Carroll, while newly-promoted Ligue 1 giants AS Monaco have also been credited with a shock interest.
