Carroll on loan to West Ham, who will replace Carroll in Liverpool?

Carroll Loan West Ham

West Ham and Liverpool are said to have agreed a loan deal for Andy Carroll, which will make Upton Park his new home. There were many teams, such as AC Milan and Newcastle United, which were interested in signing the player, but they could not meet up to the wage expectations of Liverpool Football Club.

Initially it was understood that the player would be taken on loan by West Ham and a GBP 17 million deal was suppose to be made permanent, if West Ham survived relegation. But, things have changed as per the new deal, where the player has been taken for a loan fee of GBP 1.5 million. Now, there is no guarantee that the player will be at Upton Park, even if they survived relegation, as there is no mention about it in his new contract. But, if they are interested then they again need to discuss the terms and conditions on another table next season.

But, Brendan Rodgers by sending Andy Carroll on loan contradicted his statement, where he often disagreed to the press when they asked him about sending the player on loan. His answer had been no, but due to some reasons. But, if we look at the bigger picture Andy is in the right path. He still has a lot to prove to Brendan Rodgers.

It was known that the player was not in Brendan Rodgers scheme of things and the new manager had made this clear to the player, who still did not want to leave Liverpool, in spite being referred as a cover striker. He was keen to fight for a place in the side, but now, it seems a wise decision has been taken by Carroll.

But, with his absence, Liverpool would be running short of strikers, so they need to find a quick fix to the solution. Some names that have been doing the rounds are Sturridge, Dempsey and Llorente. Dempsey might be the favourite to land at Anfield. But Liverpool’s interest in Sturridge , Walcott and Llorente are not unknown in world football. So, it would not be surprising to see Brendan making a smart move for one of these players. For Liverpool, Fernando Llorente could be the best possible buy, but has a huge buyout clause, which might scare Liverpool. The transfer window will come to a close tomorrow on 31 August 2012, but there is lot more activity in the transfer window still left for Liverpool. Hence, we can expect Liverpool to be busy in the transfer window tomorrow as well.
