Liverpool will hope to conclude deals for three players in the coming days after it was confirmed that Andy Carroll had passed his medical with West Ham United and is poised to complete his £15m move to Upton Park.

West Ham chairman David Gold confirmed on his Twitter account that Carroll had completed his medical on Tuesday night, saying: "We managed to bring Andy's medical forward to this evening and I am delighted to inform you that he has passed with flying colours."

The 24 year old is now expected to put pen to paper on a six year contract that could see him earning around £100,00-a-week as he looks to get his career back on track after a difficult spell on Merseyside.

Carroll had been suffering from a heel problem that kept him out of the England friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil, but it seems West Ham are confident that there are no long term issues with his fitness.

The sale of Carroll may now spark a busy week for Liverpool who will be hoping to tie up deals for Porto winger Christian Atsu, Sevilla youngster Luis Alberto and Shakhtar Donetsk's attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is desperate to add more strength in depth this summer and reports suggest that Alberto and Atsu could arrive within the coming days for a combined fee of around £8m.

What remains of the funds from the sale of Carroll would then go on helping finance a deal for Mkhitaryan who is likely to cost more than £20m after another impressive season in Ukraine where he scored 25 league goals.

The 24 year old plays as an attacking midfielder so would certainly not be a ready-made replacement for unhappy striker Luis Suarez, and would more likely feature either in the wide areas or just behind a central striker.

The Mirror reports that the Armenian press has stated that the Shakhtar attacker has been given permission to discuss personal terms with Liverpool and undergo a medical.

While Mkhitaryan would immediately push for a place in the first team, it is likely that both Atsu and Alberto would be viewed as ones for the future.

Alberto was playing for Barcelona B last season but at 20 years of age has plenty of time to develop, while Atsu, 21, struggled to get a game for Porto after refusing to sign a new deal and running down his contract.

Liverpool are also hoping that they can finally secure a deal for Spanish forward Iago Aspas, while it is believed that they are also pushing to sign Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
