Liverpool striker Andy Carroll has returned to Newcastle United’s radar, with Alan Pardew wanting to bring Carroll back to the club for a cut price fee of £10million.
The 24-year-old is currently on-loan at West Ham and has had a good season with the Hammers, leading to beliefs that Sam Allardyce wanted to make the striker a permanent signing.
However, with talks between Liverpool and West Ham at a standstill the Magpies are prepared to swoop in and steal Carroll away.
Newcastle will have more financial clout to bring the England international back to the north east and the forward is likely to be tempted into a return to the club where he had so much success.
It would of course be a mutual positive for player and club, with Newcastle lacking firepower up-front since the departure of Demba Ba to Chelsea in January.
The Reds may not see the deal with rose-tinted glasses however, as they would be set to lose a staggering £25million just two years after they made Carroll the most expensive British player of all time.
Yet with Brendan Rodgers being installed as manager instead of Kenny Dalglish since the Geordie’s arrival, Liverpool may be prepared to simply cut their losses on one of the most pricey flops in Premier League history.
For Carroll his price-tag has always hindered him, but his performances for West Ham this season has shown that the talent is there and it may just take a journey up the M1 to relive that potential from two years ago.
