EPL striker to fill Andy Carroll's shoes

The Daily Mirror is reporting that West Ham striker Carlton Cole could be making a move to Newcastle, after the January departure of Andy Carroll to Liverpool.

Carroll moved from Newcastle to Liverpool for £35 million at almost literally the last minute of the January transfer window. His departure left Toon manager Alan Pardew with a record amount of money to spend in the summer. Pardew has continually insisted that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is planning on reinvesting the entire £35 million back into buying new players to build a top flight squad.


After Carroll departed for Liverpool in January, a hole was left in the forward positions at St James' Park, and Newcastle are being linked to numerous players to fill such gap.

Cole is the lastest, and currently has 11 goals to his name for West Ham this season. The Daily Mirror has valued Cole at around £10 million, which will be a bargain for Newcastle with the money they have in the kitty from Carroll's sale.

Cole is 27 years old, and while Carroll is only 22, Pardew is reportedly looking for a player who can have an immediate impact on the Barclays Premier League, unlike Carroll who is slowly being blooded into the Liverpool side.
