Liverpool will contemplate sending beleaguered striker Andy Carroll out on loan next season, as the club plans an overhaul of its forward line, reports the London Metro.

According to the paper, the Reds have a shortlist of up to five attacking additions they are currently considering, in a bid to add more firepower to their squad.

Valencia striker Roberto Soldado, Athletic Bilbao's Fernando Llorente, and FC Groningen's David Texeira, are all believed to be on Kenny Dalglish's radar, with substantial funds available to invest in the first-team again this summer.

Liverpool toyed with the idea of letting Carroll quit Anfield in January, on the suggestion of former Director of Football Damien Comolli.

However, Dalglish opted to stand by the 23-year-old front man, and his faith has seemingly paid off, after Carroll netted two crucial goals in his last three appearances.

Despite breaking the club record transfer fee to bring the England international to Merseyside in a £35million deal, Liverpool will consider letting the player leave on a temporary loan deal, in a bid to help him rediscover his best form.

Having scored only 40 Premier League goals this term, the Reds are one of the lowest scorers in the division - something that the club will want to address when making their moves in the transfer market this summer.
