Tottenham are considering a move for West Ham United striker Andy Carroll, according to the Sun.

Carroll only recently returned from the latest in a long line of injuries, missing a brilliant opportunity to score his first Premier League goal of the season against Bournemouth at the weekend.

The 30-year-old scored just three times across all competitions last season and is out of contract at the end of the current campaign.

The Sun claims he could be available for just £2 million this month, and Spurs are said to be looking at the former Newcastle United and Liverpool star to solve their striker crisis.

Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Dele Alli are all sidelined with injuries while Son Heung-Min is away at the Asian Cup with South Korea, meaning Fernando Llorente is the only senior member of the squad who can play as a centre forward.

Llorente struggled against Fulham on Sunday, scoring an own goal and missing multiple opportunities to find the net at the right end.

We can’t see why Carroll would be any better. It would be absolutely bizarre for Tottenham to make a move for him at this time.
