theo-walcottThe summer Anfield clearance has begun! With the latest signing of Fabio Borini and the departure of Maxi Rodriguez, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has started to reshuffles his playing squad.

Andy Carroll has been subject to many speculation after Rodgers has admitted that the England international striker could leave on a season-long loan with a permanent deal at the end of 12-months. Although Liverpool has rejected Newcastle bid earlier for Carroll. AC Milan and West Ham United are still interested on signing the big striker on a season-long loan deal.

News on Zlatan Ibrahimovic almost completing his move to Paris St. Germain from AC Milan has boosted the chance of Carroll moving in the opposition direction.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are ready to rival Chelsea in the hunt for Arsenal winger Theo Walcott.

Walcott has just a year to run on his contract with the Gunners and could follow Robin van Persie's lead by seeking a move away from the Emirates Stadium if the club does not boost his wages to £100,000 per week.

Rodgers will be pondering a £15million move and could use money from any sale of Andy Carroll to pay for the deal.

As a pacy winger with an eye for goal, Walcott would fit seamlessly into Rodgers' preferred playing style.

Target-man Carroll, however, may find opportunities under Rodgers more limited.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is desperate to keep Walcott, especially with Robin van Persie refusing to sign a new deal but some members of Emirates board would be prepared to cash in now.

Will Theo Walcott move to Anfield?

Liverpool may be ready to bid for Aston Villa striker Darren Bent, who has become unsettled in Birmingham "following a summer of change and a succession of niggly injuries".

Bent joined Villa from Sunderland for £24 million in the 2011 January transfer window, but he has recently expressed frustration at the lack of service he is receiving at the club.

He has also incurred the wrath of fans by missing Villa’s 2-0 home defeat by Liverpool - opting to go Christmas shopping instead.

Liverpool have also been put on alert following reports that contract talks between Theo Walcott and Arsenal have broken down.

Walcott is one of several players at Arsenal who will have just one year left on their existing deals at the end of the season, and if a new deal is not agreed before the summer, manager Arsene Wenger could be forced to sell rather than risk losing him on a free transfer the following year.

Walcott said in October that he was willing to listen to the Gunners about a new contract following reports linking him with a move away from Emirates Stadium, however his agent later admitted that he did not know if the forward would still be at the club next season.

Who should Liverpool FC buy in January to strengthen the forward line?
