West Ham United are desperate to offload one of their strikers in January for a fee, rather than risk losing him for nothing in the summer.
The tall centre-forward has just six months left on his current contract at the London Stadium, although West Ham do have the option to trigger a clause to extend his deal by a further two-years – although they would need to offer him a pay rise.
Manuel Pellegrini has praised the former Liverpool man in the past, however, it does not appear to be enough to convince the club to keep him.
Carroll is thought to prefer a move to the MLS should any possible offers come in for him.
Carroll has had a difficult time at West Ham since joining in 2013 from Liverpool with a number of injuries playing havoc.
The striker, who is now 30-years-old, has had numerous ankle and hamstring injuries in the last couple of years, which has required him to go under the knife.
It remains to be seen if a club will come in for him in January, or if West Ham will lose out on a transfer fee for him in the summer.
