Powerful Englishman is unwanted by his parent club. 

In-demand Liverpool front man Andy Carroll wants to be paid £100,000 per week to join West Ham United on a permanent deal next season, reports the Daily Mirror.

The giant England international has been at Anfield for the past three-and-a-half seasons now, having signed for the Merseyside giants from hometown club Newcastle United for a club-record fee of £35 million in January 2011.

However, it is fair to say that in the intervening period the 24-year-old has found it hard to settle with the Reds, so much so that new Liverpool head coach Brendan Rodgers opted to ship the striker out on a season-long loan to West Ham at the start of the previous campaign.

And after a highly successful year at Upton Park, in which Carroll netted seven goals in 23 Premier League fixtures for Sam Allardyce’s at times struggling side, the East End club then agreed a £15.5m deal with Liverpool to sign the player permanently, although they will now also need to match Carroll’s wage demands for the transfer to go ahead.
