Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has set his sight on Arsenal winger Theo Walcott and he is ready to offload Kop flop ex-Newcastle striker Andy Carroll.
Walcott’s future has been subject to much speculation as he has only one year left to run on his contract and yet to commit his future at the Emirates by agreeing a new deal.
Rodgers, who is looking to bolster his squad by adding a winger, could lure the Englishman with a better wage package. Walcott currently earns about £65,000 a week and it is estimated that he might be offered something around the region of £100,000 weekly.
Walcott was one of the better performers for England in the Euro 2012 and has caught the eyeballs of Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo and high flying PSG chief Carlo Ancelotti.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to keep hold of his star man especially with Robin van Persie refusing to sign a new deal.
Also, last night Liverpool rejected a loan bid from Newcastle. Instead the Reds are looking to cash in with a permanent deal to raise money for bringing in new faces at Anfield and Walcott could one of them.
