LONDON: West Ham have offered Andy Carroll (pic) a mind-boggling £36m upfront in the hope of luring him away from Liverpool, claimed The Sun..
The two clubs have already agreed a deal for the England striker. And Sam Allardyce’s Hammers are now ready to pay Carroll, 23, his current £90,000-a-week wages over eight years. Former club Newcastle are also keen to rescue the £35m man from Anfield. But a West Ham source said: “West Ham are not giving up on this. The manager wants him badly and the board are backing him to the hilt.” The clubs have shaken on a £2m loan fee with another £17m on top should the Hammers stay in the Premier League. An initial five-year deal is on the table with the potential for three more. Manager Allardyce hopes to get an answer from Carroll within 24 hours. Carroll’s chances of a Toon return reduced as the deadline on Demba Ba’s £7m buyout clause ended tgis morning.
