Gossip: Andy Carroll to get a England call up as Arsenal look to bid £15m

The 21-year-old Carroll, who scored his seventh goal of the season for the Magpies on Wednesday night has had a impressive start in the premiership so far and is now in line for a call up with the national side.

Arsene Wenger rates him very high and reports are floating around he may try land the big man in the january transfer market with a 15m bid.

Scoring seven times in 11 appearances, Carroll has outscored a number of the top strikers in the country and with Wayne Rooney failing to produce the goods on the field for either club nor country, it seems that the change would be welcomed by many.

Fans were calling for Carroll to be included into the national side earlier this year but England manager Fabio Capello opted to overlook the front man and it seems that his decision cost him greatly, producing yet another poor performance with his aging squad.

With pressure to perform on Capello, it seems that the inclusion of Andy Carroll is only a matter of time and with former England internationals Sol Campbell and Alan Shearer adding their support for the striker, surely Capello can’t fail to include him in the friendly match against France later this month?

Sol Campbell told The Sun “He is a raw talent – he has lots of energy, is a handful for any defender, good in the air, holds the ball up well and is willing to fight for the cause, both in attack and defence.”

Could you see him tempted to leave in the next transfer window ?

    More crap from peabrained London-based journos who are furious Carroll wants to remain at his hometown club. And £15 million for God's sake ????????????
    Bent went for £24 mill and he's not in Carroll's class and a lot older, and Carroll is going to get a LOT better.
    This kind of Lahnden crap is insulting.
    Newcastle are NOT Blackpool or Wigan or some Championship club who HAVE to sell to make ends meet.
