Carroll notched just one goal in 43 outings in his return stint at St. James’ Park. As such, his contract was not renwed this summer as Carroll walked away as a free agent in July.

The burly centre-forward has not found a new club in the months since. But per Sport Witness, an exciting opportunity in Serie A has opened up.

Citing Italian outlet Sportal, they claim Carroll ‘could sign for Cagliari.’

The Serie A strugglers currently sit in 19th position and current boss Walter Mazzarri is on the hunt for a ‘physical striker’ to bolster their ranks.

Few strikers in world football are as physical as Carroll, and his status as a free agent could appeal to Cagliari.

Carroll’s view on uprooting from England to play abroad is unstated in the article. Though he would not be the first English striker to walk a similar path in recent years.

Former Liverpool teammate Daniel Sturridge moved Trabzonspor when searching for regular football in 2019. After his spell in Turkey ended in 2020, Sturridge struggled to find a suitor before landing in Australia with Perth Glory at the beginning of October this year.
