West Ham to tempt Carroll from Liverpool with big-money offer
West Ham could offer Andy Carroll a staggering £36m contract spread over eight years as they up their bid to sign the England striker from Liverpool.
According to the Daily Mail, the Hammers are desperate to arrange a deal for the former Newcastle man and are hoping that offering him wages of £90,000 a week will attract him to East London.
It remains to be seen what will happen with Carroll after a summer of transfer speculation haunts his already shaky time at Anfield, the striker failing to make an impression after his £35m move from Newcastle 18 months ago - scoring just 6 goals in 42 Premier League games.
It is thought that Liverpool were happy to loan the 23-year-old out for this season but Carroll himself is holding out for a return to Newcastle rather than a move south, should he have to play his football elsewhere in the next campaign. Brendan Rodgers has included the centre-forward in his initial 25-man squad list.
