Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that powerful striker Andy Carroll could spend some time away from the club on loan.
Carroll has been widely linked with a loan switch to AC Milan in recent days, but Rodgers insists Liverpool have received no enquiries for the player’s services.
Nevertheless, letting the man who cost £35M to sign from Newcastle United in the January 2011 transfer window move on loan could be a possibility for the new Reds boss.
"It is something I would have to look at, I have to be honest", Rodgers was quoted as saying on the BBC.
"Andy’s always going to be linked with clubs, whether he was here or not", added the Northern Irishman.
"He knows exactly where he stands, but I have had no enquiries about him."
Carroll boosted his stock at Euro 2012 this summer, scoring for England in the group stage and looking dangerous whenever called upon.
He was expected to push on under Rodgers, especially after showing flashes of the talent he displayed at Newcastle at points last season for previous boss Kenny Dalglish.
But it now appears the 23-year-old may not be Rodgers’ cup of tea.
