West Ham United are considering a bid for Liverpool’s England international Stewart Downing following the arrival of ex-teammate and striker Andy Carroll, according to the BBC.
Downing has failed to make a real impact at Anfield as he only scored seven goals and provided just 11 assists since he joined Liverpool for £20million from Aston Villa.
Downing is just one of the options being considered by West Ham United as manager Sam Allardyce ponders on how to best utilise Andy Carroll.
Downing is one of the best options as the pair teamed up together back at Liverpool and he is arguably one of the best crossers of the ball in the Premier League since David Beckham.
The player revealed Brendan Rodgers allowed him to leave last December but Downing has since stayed and fought for his place in the Liverpool starting 11.
However it seems Downing is set for a departure from Anfield this summer with Liverpool likely to accept a bid significantly less than the £20million they paid for the winger.
