Liverpool: Imagining a Reds Lineup with Andy Carroll Back at Anfield

The latest twist in the Andy Carroll saga is that he has gone on record saying he would be open to staying at current club West Ham United (via The Guardian).

The Hammers No. 8, currently on loan at Upton Park from Liverpool, has enjoyed a rich vein of form of late, netting a long-range free-kick against Southampton this weekend, and has scored five goals in his last seven Premier League starts.

With Carroll relishing his chances leading the West Ham line, there are obvious merits to a possible reconsideration of his place in the Liverpool first team this summer. However, the mooted £17 million asking price (via Daily Mail) would be hefty for any club interested in the big striker.

And so, whether Brendan Rodgers wants to or not, he might face a situation where Andy Carroll is back at his disposal at Anfield next season.

He might not make the starting lineup week in, week out, but here is how Liverpool could and should look like, in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Andy Carroll back in the mix at Liverpool.

Disclaimer: For all the rumors surrounding Liverpool’s transfer activity this summer, we will assume that the squad remains unchanged for practical purposes.
