Liverpool fans welcome Tevez for Carroll swap deal


70 per cent of Liverpool fans think a swap deal with Andy Carroll and Carlos Tevez would a good deal for the Anfield club.

In an exclusive poll of over 11,000 Reds fans by GiveMeFootball, the deal that has been circulating in the press was given a substantial seal of approval.

Manchester City reportedly dismissed the deal out of hand after being approached by the Merseyside club last week.

However, Andy Carroll has since stated his desire to stay with Liverpool and try to earn his place.

Meanwhile the Tevez saga rumbles on at the Etihad Stadium, as it appears he may not get the move he wanted and is facing exile from the City first team until the summer.

The report suggested that Liverpool were willing to offload their record £35million signing to bring in the unhappy Argentina international.

This exclusive GMF poll suggests that Liverpool fans would welcome a deal that takes the failing striker away from Anfield.

Since his British transfer record move from Newcastle United a year ago, the 23-year-old has found the net on just six occaisions and has cut a forlorn figure at times.

It was hoped the eight-game suspension handed out to Luis Suarez would mean a run in the team for the England international and a subsequent return to form.

This has not been the case and, should the reports of an exchange be accurate, it would seem Kenny Dalglish has lost patience with the Geordie hitman.

Tevez has been on strike in Argentina since late last year and is desperate to find a new club, but Manchester City would probably be unwilling to send such a talented player to another big club.

Many have been praising Carroll’s effort in the past few games, insisting he will find his form once more. But Liverpool are in dire need of goals, something the 6’4” striker has not been able to deliver.

Tevez has scored wherever he has played – he was joint top scorer in the Barclays Premier League last season – and would provide added impetus up front with Suarez.

City may have rejected the deal but the Liverpool fans have given a damning judgement on the impact Carroll has made since his record-breaking arrival.
