The name of Andy Carroll was frequently mentioned during the month of January 2011 and while it’s unclear as to how much interest there really was on Spurs’ part, the final transfer fee paid by Liverpool at £35 million would have ended any speculation.
Move forward nearly two years and the forward has had a dismal time at Anfield and despite earning some praise at West Ham, the player has yet to score for his loan club. The forward’s loan at Upton Park runs until the end of the season but that hasn’t stopped further rumours about a permanent sale to White Hart Lane.
Carroll’s goal to game ratio since joining Liverpool is in the region of one in six although his transfer price is believed to have dropped to £17m as a result. Many will be therefore hoping that this is just paper talk but would you welcome such a deal?
