Everton willing to fork out £20m for Hammers striker

CarrollAndy Carroll being lined up by Everton in £20m deal in January claim the Sun today suggesting that Everton’s under-fire boss Ronald Koeman has the West Ham striker top of his list to finally replace Romelu Lukaku

The report says Everton’s failure to land a frontman after pocketing £75m selling Lukaku to Manchester United sparked tension between Koeman, director of football Steve Walsh and Goodison chairman Bill Kenwright.

Carroll has 18 months left on his £85,000-a-week deal and West Ham could be prepared to cash in if they get the right offer in January.

Everton are currently losing at half time having won just twice in the Premier League this season and are currently below the Hammers in the league table.

  1. If we were to sell him, selling him to relegation rivals would be a mistake.

  2. They’ve just lost at home to Burnley – leaving Koeman at even shorter odds than Bilic to get the tin tack!

    If they’re really serious about signing Carrol we should snatch their hands off!

  3. Agree we should consider selling but we want more of their Lukako money than £20m in the current market. Ffs we spent that on Ayew! £20m plus Morallis?

    • I can’t honestly think of any of their players that would make us better. Mirallas can’t even get into their team and we have too many wide players already. Maybe Niasse but he seems a bit hit and miss. £30m cash but i still think selling to a rival at the bottom would be a mistake.

  4. £20m is too low – £30m perhaps?
    Everton won’t be relegated (they’ve never been relegated from the PL even when they should have been, with some pretty poor teams in the past 20 years). They will finish mid-table, like they normally do.
    I’d be prepared to take the risk of AC playing a half season for them after we sold him (seems unlikely given his track record), & even scoring a few goals. They’re a bogey team for us anyway (even without Lukaku in the side), so I wouldn’t be surprised if he scored the winning goal against us. On balance I’d still be happy to take the money rather than resign him – he hasn’t been an unqualified success since he arrived.

  5. I’ve really can’t see anybody buying Andy Carroll. He’s been so unfortunate with his injuries, and I doubt anybody will pay the salary West Ham do because of it. Would you want to buy a car that keeps breaking down?
