Liverpool Football Club has submitted a record second offer of 35-million pound sterling bid for Newcastle’s 22-year-old striker Andy Carroll.
The 35-million figure would represent a record transfer offer for Liverpool.
Newcastle had earlier rejected the Reds initial 30-million pound bid, as well as another offer from Tottenham last week.
Carroll has scored 11 goals in 19 league games this season and made his full England debut in November's 2-1 defeat by France at Wembley.
According to the BBC, Carroll “played a crucial role in the Magpies' promotion from the Championship last season and has continued to shine since being handed the number nine shirt during the summer.”
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has repeatedly asserted that Carroll is not for sale, but club owner Mike Ashley and managing director Derek Llambias are reportedly interested in offers.
