£15m Liverpool and Tottenham target ‘next Andy Carroll’

Alan Pardew has renewed his interest in Ipswich wonderkid Connor Wickham, as Liverpool and Tottenham decide their moves on the star, according to the Daily Mail.

The Newcastle manager reportedly sees Wickham as the next Andy Carroll, after Carroll departed the Toon for Liverpool in January for £35 million. At Wickham’s tender age of 18, the youngster has demonstrated the same star potential that Carroll did in his time at Newcastle.


With the money from Carroll’s sale, Pardew would have enough to compete with Liverpool for Wickham’s signature, and Reading striker Shane Long and Cardiff’s Jay Bothroyd would accompany Wickham if Pardew’s wish list for Newcastle’s forward line comes to fruition.

Liverpool has shown interest in Wickham on many occasions, and Kenny Dalglish reportedly sees the youngster as a great addition to his forward line up alongside Carroll and Luis Suarez.

Tottenham had also been linked to Wickham this season, but Harry Redknapp moved to quash any speculation of a deal for Wickham to move to Tottenham after Ipswich placed a £15 million price tag over Wickham’s head.

"I don't see us paying the sort of money that Ipswich are talking about,” the Tottenham manager said.

"He's not someone who'd be ready to play in the first team next season.

"He'd be better off staying for another year."
