Andy Carroll out and Lukasz Teodorczyk in would be great business from West Ham

West Ham United should consider a move for the Polish hitman.

The former coach of Manchester City, Chilean Manuel Pellegrini (L), arrives for the draw of the Copa Sudamericana football tournament, in Santiago, on July 12, 2016.

Manuel Pellegrini has a lot of issues to address at West Ham this summer, but one of his most pressing concerns will be Andy Carroll, and whether to keep or sell the Geordie hitman.

The 29-year-old striker proved once again last season that he cannot be relied upon from a fitness perspective, and with just one year remaining on his current contract with the club, it might just be prudent for the Hammers to sell him this summer.

If West Ham do get rid of Carroll this summer, they will obviously have to bring in an able-bodied replacement, and a fantastic option for them could be Anderlecht hitman Lukasz Teodorczyk.

The 27-year-old is a target man type striker in every sense, and he would be the ideal replacement for Carroll at West Ham.

Standing at 6ft 1in tall, and powerfully built, Teodorczyk is strong in the air, but he's not just a one trick pony, he is also a lethal finisher when presented with a goalscoring opportunity.

He has scored 99 goals in 225 career appearances, and his all-round game seems to be ideally suited to the robust nature of the Premier League.

The 19-capped Poland international could play through the middle on his own, or form part of a two-pronged attack with someone like Javier Hernandez.

Teodorczyk is available for around £10 million this summer, according to the Liverpool Echo, and in today's day and age, that would represent excellent value for West Ham.
