Demba Ba In Swap For Carroll?
Brendan Rodgers is reported to be interested in a more mobile striker to fit into his system and Demba Ba has been identified by him as a possibility.
How fans of the two clubs would perceive a ‘cash plus Demba Ba’ for Carroll deal is open to question, espcially if Newcastle fans put aside any resentment to the fact that Carroll chose to leave Newcastle – no matter how happy Mike Ashley was to do the £35m deal as well.
As a fan I’d love to have both Ba AND Carroll alongside Cisse in the squad, giving Alan Pardew and Newcastle United the options and strength in depth that would go a long way to ensuring a successful season.
One massive benefit of any deal, certainly from the Anfield side of things, is that it potentially gives the American owners a better chance of saving some face, having paid way over the odds last January.
It would be a lot easier to muddy the waters as to what benefit they were getting back on Carroll, rather than a straight cash deal.
Just to gauge fan views, if it was a choice of Carroll or Demba Ba vote now in our poll.
