Big front man’s future has still to be resolved this summer.
West Ham United head coach Sam Allardyce has called upon on-loan striker Andy Carroll to join the Hammers permanently come the end of the season, says the Daily Mirror.
The massive England international is currently spending a season-long loan spell at Upton Park from his parent club Liverpool after Reds manager Brendan Rodgers deemed the player surplus to requirements at Anfield upon his arrival on Merseyside last summer.
However, the 24-year-old must soon decide where his future lies next season, with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and his former club Newcastle United both said to be interested in also signing Carroll come the summer.
Either way, the striker has finally found some form in front of goal for West Ham of late, having recovered from a succession of niggling injuries that hampered the early part of his time in the capital.
And, with six Premier League goals to his name so far this campaign, Carroll may soon just have a few difficult choices to make.
