Sky Sports sources understand Liverpool striker Andy Carroll is prepared to consider a loan move to another Premier League club playing in Europe this season.
Carroll's future at Anfield is uncertain following the appointment of Brendan Rodgers as manager and former club Newcastle United have already failed with a bid.
The Magpies wanted to sign the England international on loan with a view to a permanent deal, but Rodgers has insisted there is 'no way' Carroll will be leaving on a temporary basis.
The 23-year-old, meanwhile, is understood to be unwilling to move on permanently, but is prepared to reluctantly consider a loan spell away from Liverpool.
West Ham United were understood to have made a £17million bid for the forward, who has scored just six goals in 42 league appearances since his £35million move to Merseyside in January 2011.
A switch to Upton Park would not appear to be on Carroll's agenda, however, with the player favouring European football if he does leave the Reds.
Newcastle would be able to meet that demand after last season's fifth-placed finish secured a spot in the Europa League, with Tottenham Hotspur also in the same competition.
Liverpool start their own Europa League campaign next week, while Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea will be playing in the UEFA Champions League.
