West Ham have stepped up their interest in Liverpool striker Andy Carroll by making a £15m-plus bid that would break the Hammer's transfer record.

The offer would see England forward Carroll initially move on loan for a season with a commitment to buy the England striker next summer, which is not something that I see Liverpool going for as they have already dismissed a similar offer from Newcastle.

The Dynamo are nine points behind DC United for the top spot in the conference, four points behind the Chicago Fire for the next position in the table (which only proves what a wasted opportunity Tuesday night was).
