Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is ready to ditch the club's record signing to raise funds to bring in new faces before the summer transfer window closes.
AC Milan, Newcastle, and West Ham have all been linked with the 23-year-old, but only the Hammers have got close to matching Liverpool's valuation.
Asked if Carroll would still be a Liverpool player when the window closes tomorrow night, Rodgers said: "It is too early to say. I can only be straight with a player on where he stands. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to see Andy has been a cover player for us.
"He has been excellent in terms of his attitude and his acceptance of where he is at. But I'm not sure we are in a position to have Â£35m players as third-choice strikers or wingers who might be on Â£6m a year. I don't think the club is in that position. The club needs repair financially."
Walcott's standoff with Arsenal, where he has rejected a Â£75,000-a-week offer, has fuelled interest from Liverpool and Manchester City, The Daily Express reports. (ANI)
