West Ham are lining up a bid for Liverpool winger Stewart Downing as Sam Allardyce looks to rebuild his Hammers side.

Downing would become the east London club’s second arrival from Anfield this summer after Andy Carroll completed a £15million deal to make his stay at Upton Park permanent.

Allardyce believes the two work well together, with Carroll aiming to thrive on the former Aston Villa winger’s service. In fact, the manager first enquired about the 28-year-old at the end of last season and have since firmed up their interest.

Downing found himself out of Reds manager Brendan Rodgers’ plans at the start of last season, and although he won his place back in the side Liverpool would be willing to part with him and get him off the wage bill.

They would have to accept signifincantly less than the £20m former manager Kenny Dalglish paid to take him to Anfield in 2011.

It would follow Carroll’s cut-price deal from his record-breaking £35m move to Anfield from Newcastle.
