West Ham are very interested in securing forward Andy Carroll on a permanent deal from Liverpool, reports Sky
Club co-owner David Sullivan confirmed that the London club are keen to see the Geordie-born striker make his stay with the Hammers permanent.
“We would love to keep him beyond this season and we will soon be sitting down with Andy and Liverpool to make some progress on that front,” Sullivan told the Daily Mirror.
“Andy has battled back from injury twice to put in a series of tireless shifts for the team. His game is about so much more than just scoring goals.
The 24-year-old has scored eight times for West Ham this term on his season-long loan at Upton park. Carroll made a high-profile £35m move from Newcastle to Liverpool in January 2011 but proved to be a disappointment at Anfield, scoring just six times in 44 appearances for the Reds.
But Carroll, who has also played at Preston North End in his career, has enjoyed an upturn in form since his move to East London putting the Hammers in a strong position for a top-half Premier League finish. Sam Allardyce’s men face a trip to Everton at the weekend before they finish their campaign hosting relegated Reading.
