Hammers hope to conclude negotiations by next week.
West Ham United hope to be able to complete the permanent signing of Liverpool front man Andy Carroll imminently, says the London Evening Standard.
The giant England international spent the whole of last season out on loan at Upton Park after having been deemed surplus to requirements by his parent club Liverpool last summer.
And in his one campaign in the East End of London, the 24-year-old proved himself to be a firm favourite with the Hammers’ fans, finding the back of the net on seven occasions in his 23 Premier League contests for the club, goals that effectively kept Sam Allardyce’s side in the top flight come the end of the season.
However, plans to sign the attacker for £15.5 million have recently hit a snag over the player’s wage demands, although it is now understood that West Ham have offered Carroll a four-year deal worth £78,000 per week which the club hope he will agree to sign on Monday.
