Andy Carroll could be set for a shock return to the Premier League as Burnley eye the Englishman as a replacement for the departed Chris Wood.
Carroll is currently competing in the Championship with Reading, where he is only earning £1,000-per-week.
It's been a long fall from the top for Carroll, who Liverpool once forked over £35million to secure the services of when he was a youngster.
However, the Daily Mail claim Burnley could offer Carroll one final shot at the big time.
Sean Dyche is in the market for a new striker after Newcastle United triggered Wood's £25million release clause earlier this week.
Carroll was released by his boyhood side over the summer, and he spent four months training alone.
However, Reading offered him a lifeline on a short term deal – that saw him earn £1,000-per-week – to get back up to fitness.
Carroll has managed just one goal for Reading, but his two disallowed goals went viral on social media earlier this week against Fulham.

Burnley could look to the 33-year-old to help them avoid the drop.
The Clarets are staring perilously into the drop, and Dyche's side are currently 17th in the table.
Burnley do have a game in hand over Watford, who are currently 16th, but the Lancashire side haven't won a game since their 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in November.
