The manager of West Ham United, Sam Allardyce, has said that he has reached a financial agreement with Liverpool on the signing of Andy Carroll and now, it’s up to the English striker to decide whether he wants to make this move or not.
Carroll had played for West Ham United in the last season on loan and he had done quite well for them. He had played 24 games and had scored 7 goals.
Allardyce is said to be quite impressed with Carroll’s speed and he wants to sign him on a permanent basis now.
In one of his interviews, when Allardyce was asked about his plans this summer, he said, “Securing the services of Andy Carroll is our first target. He was brilliant for us in the last season and I want him to be a permanent part of the squad. Luckily, Liverpool also wants to put him on sale and we have reached an agreement as far as the transfer fee is concerned. Now, it’s up to Andy to decide.”
The Hammers have also been linked with the young English winger Wilfried Zaha who is currently a part of Manchester United.
When asked about that, Allardyce said, “Wilfried is a good, young player and he definitely has a bright future ahead of him. I saw him playing for the English U-21 team recently and I liked his style of play. It would be nice to have him in the camp, but, to be honest; we haven’t talked to the officials of Manchester United about this move.”
Manchester United bought Zaha from Crystal Palace in January this year and then, immediately placed him on loan to the same club for the remaining part of the season. Zaha has not even made his debut for Manchester United till now.
