West Ham United admit interest in Liverpool and England striker Carroll
Assistant manager Neil McDonald has admitted West Ham United are interested in signing Liverpool striker Andy Carroll.
The England international has been linked with a move away from Anfield following the arrival of new manager Brendan Rodgers.
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce and captain Kevin Nolan know Carroll well from their time together at Newcastle United and they also share the same agent.
The Hammers are understood to be preparing an ambitious season-long loan offer for the 23-year-old with a view to a permanent move.
Speaking after the Irons' 1-1 draw at Boreham Wood, McDonald said: “Of course [West Ham would be interested]. He’s a very good player. I very much doubt he will be [available], he’s a Liverpool player but we’re looking to strengthen in all areas and the manager and board are working very hard to bring some new legs in to liven everything up.”
