West Ham must finally offload this £9m-rated flop to start afresh this summer

West Ham fans at the Tavern are fed up with seeing player after player becoming injured and unable to contribute to help West Ham avoid relegation this season.

One player however that the fans are well and truly done with is Andy Carroll, worth £9.00 million according to Transfermarkt. When the Hammers finally thought they were seeing the back of the no.9 by selling him to Chelsea this January, in typical Andy Carroll fashion, he got injured right before the deal could materialise. Having only scored two goals in 14 appearances this season, West Ham were losing faith with the striker as his high wages and high maintenance should add up to more than two goals in a season.

That is the sole reason why West Ham must look to finally cash in on Carroll this summer. Whether any team will be willing to take a risk on Carroll is a hard call to judge but West Ham know the quality he possesses when on the pitch.

The big number nine is lethal in the air and is well known as one of the leagues best players when scoring from a header but with West Ham in need of money to replenish their side, selling Carroll would free up a big amount of wage and a substantial transfer fee to be used to attract new players to the London Stadium.

In the past three seasons, Carroll has played in 57 out of a possible 114 league games. In those games as well, Carroll has managed just 18 goals and for the hassle, he is to have round the club, our landlord even agrees that now is finally the time to say goodbye to Big Andy.
