Grant, who joined the Baggies from Huddersfield Town earlier this summer, is currently off duty for up to six weeks with a broken foot.
The 23-year-old has had a frustrating season with just one goal scored in 12 outings and the injury will see him miss at least seven league games.
A move by Carroll can be considered a risk with his injury history, but the Baggies find themselves where they need to improve their front row to add more goals and points to their tally.
Aside from England international, they also have Bournemouth striker Josh King on their radar, but they face fierce competition from West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
