Carroll swap with Tevez dismissed by Man City

Liverpool have made a remarkable approach for Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez and have included Andy Carroll in that deal, The Guardian reports. The Reds had tried to swap their £35m striker for Tevez, just a year on from his signing from Newcastle United.

The Reds contacted City football administrator Brian Marwood on Thursday to ask how much they wanted for the Argentinian and whether they would consider a swap deal for Carroll. City boss Roberto Mancini was interested in the 22 year old when he was at Newcastle, but Carroll’s current form has not seen him become a regular for Liverpool. Marwood rebuffed the idea immediately, but the offer shows Liverpool are now looking to sell Carroll.

With only six goals in 35 Liverpool appearances, Carroll has not shown the form that makes him the eighth most expensive footballer in history. The Reds are also reportedly ready to take a £10m sale for the striker, who played considerably well against Manchester United on Saturday. City’s decision was based on Carroll’s inability to not improve the team, despite Mancini’s lack of forward players.

Tevez is desperate to leave City and could be interested in staying in the Premier League with Liverpool. The Argentinian’s talent is without question, but Dalglish may not be interested in signing a player with such disciplinary problems. Tevez has played at Manchester United also, but that should not make a difference to Liverpool’s advances and the fans appreciation of the 27 year old.
