Andy Carroll has only made 12 Premier League appearances during what has been a frustrating 2017-18 campaign for the West Ham United forward.
Carroll missed the beginning of the season with a groin problem, and has been on the sidelines since the start of 2018 with an ankle injury.
It is thought that the centre-forward, who is valued at £9m by transfermarkt.co.uk, could return to action later this month, which would be a welcome boost for a West Ham team that are not yet safe from the drop.
Carroll has managed 32 goals and 18 assists in his 128 West Ham appearances since joining the London club from Liverpool.
He actually scored seven times in 18 Premier League appearances last term, but has managed just two league goals this season, and cannot seem to stay fit.
The West Ham supporters have been debating the future of the 29-year-old, and it would be fair to say that many want the striker, who was linked with Chelsea during the January transfer window, to be sold at the end of the season.

The problem is that he's a big loss for an awful lot of every season.

He’s a loss as a substitute, does more harm than good when he starts nowadays. Great sub to have though

Long term liability. At best off the bench for three games, then a start, before injury strikes again
