Newcastle United are reportedly plotting a free transfer move for Andy Carroll this summer.
According to The Sun, the Magpies want to secure the return of Andy Carroll to the club before the start of the new season billed to start in the next three weeks.
Newly manager Steve Bruce is keen for the ex-England international to return to the club this summer.
According to the aforementioned publication, Andy Carroll could join Newcastle United on a free transfer after he left West Ham United at the end of last season.
The former Liverpool man is a free agent at the moment.
Steve Bruce could make the 30-year-old his star striker if he manages to pull off a free transfer move for him.
Newcastle United have already lost the services of their main strikers from last season.
Topscorer Ayoze Perez has left the club to join Leicester City in a £30m deal, while Salomon Rondon has left the club after his loan spell.
He joined the Magpies from West Brom on loan last season and the Venezuelan international has signed for Dalian Yifang FC of China.
Rondon has reunited with Rafael Benitez at Dalian Yifang after both worked together at Newcastle United last season.
