- Official: Liverpool Finalise Capture Of Luis Suarez From Ajax For €27m
- Liverpool Agree A Fee With Chelsea For The Sale Of Fernando Torres
- Video Evidence: Is Liverpool-Bound Andy Carroll Worth £40.8 Million?
Liverpool have been given permission by Newcastle to discuss personal terms with the player, who has also handed in a transfer request at St James' Park, and the striker – who is carrying a thigh injury – is scheduled to undergo a medical as soon as he arrives on Merseyside.
Carroll, 22, has scored 11 goals so far this season, his first full season as a Premier League striker.
He made his England debut in November against France and has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham in recent weeks, with the transfer to Liverpool coming as much of a surprise as Fernando Torres' seeming departure to Chelsea.
If the reported £35 million deal is completed, it will eclipse the current British transfer record set by Manchester City when they signed Robinho from Real Madrid in 2008; however, Chelsea will smash that record by signing Torres for as much as £50m.
