Carroll Loan Move A "Possibility"
Posted on 11/07/2012 in News
New Liverpool Manger Brendan Rodgers has admitted that a loan deal including English international Andy Carroll is something he would consider, Carroll has endured a fairly poor season for the ambitious club but did however impress for his country at Euro 2012, scoring a fantastic header against Sweden and being regarded as one of England's most impressive players throughout a decent campaign.
Andy Carroll has been subject to major criticism after signing for Liverpool for an incredible fee of 35million pounds, a record for British players. Carroll's goalscoring record for the club has been unimpressive however Kenny Dalglish's preferred style of football did not help give the Englishman any service upfront, and Carroll was left very much isolated upfront. It seems likely that the only reason Brendan Rodgers is keen on loaning Carroll out is because Brendan Rogers' style of play which includes playing the ball across the floor and avoiding lofted passes into the box is unlikely to compliment the 6'3 target man, despite the fact that that he is a very capable finisher.
West Ham United captain and former housemate of Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan is rumoured to be trying to persuade Carroll into a loan move to Upton Park, as his style of play would very much complement Sam Allardyce's physical approach to the game. Carroll has also been linked with a shock loan move to Italian giants AC Milan to play as back up to Zlatan Ibrahimovic due to the fact that Brazilian forward Robinho is falling out of form badly as is fellow brazilian forward Alexandre Pato, who is also linked with moves to several clubs across europe, and with club legend Filipo Inzaghi being released, it is fairly evident that AC Milan are in need of a striker at the San Siro.
Andy Carroll is desperate to fulfil the potential he promised in his time at Newcastle and Brendan Rodgers feels that the best way to do this is to gain confidence elsewhere, as his goalscoring record wont get much better at Anfield.
