Liverpool Transfer News: Reds Should Jump on West Ham Offer for Andy Carroll
If the Reds truly want to move on from Carroll, they would be wise to take advantage of West Ham's willingness to spend and cut their losses.
The Reds invested over £35 million to bring Carrol into the fold in January of 2011. However, Rodgers doesn't see Carroll as a member of the starting lineup in Anfield, and considering his sizable salary, he carries a hefty price tag for a presence on the bench.
Despite scoring only 11 goals since his transfer to Liverpool, the talented 23-year-old has drawn interest from both West Ham and his former club, Newcastle.
Count Liverpool chairman Tom Werner as one who wants to see any possible moves with Carroll be done as soon as possible. According to Andy Sixsmith of Goal.com, Werner would like to see a decision on Carroll's future with the club made before speculation becomes a full-blown saga.
Having a high-profile player such as Carroll sitting on the bench will obviously cause a lot of speculation. And any drama that might come from that could be detrimental to team chemistry, in turn hurting Liverpool's efforts to capture elite status.
Since taking over the club, Rodgers has had a clear vision for what he believes Liverpool is capable of achieving and the style of play that they need to employ in order to accomplish those goals. If he believes that he can use the £17 million to acquire a player that fits into his system better, then that is the best route for the club.
Accepting West Ham's bid and moving on from Carroll would give the club the best chance to continue building the team that Rodgers envisions.
