West Ham are looking to replace Andy Carroll with Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, according to reports.

Carroll has had his injury problems this season at the London Stadium but has been vital when he has featured, with six goals in 11 Premier League starts.

The 28-year-old was reportedly a target for a few Chinese Super League sides in the January transfer window with the clubs prepared to pay £32million.

Tianjin Quanjian, Hebei China Fortune and Shandong Luneng Taishan were the clubs interested and the Daily Star claims that the Hammers would sell up in the summer if they got a similar proposal.

Meanwhile, the report suggests Sturridge – who is struggling for minutes on the pitch under current Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp – would be Slaven Bilic’s preferred replacement if they sold Carroll.

West Ham would pay as much as £25million for the England international with his future at Anfield still up in the air.
