Liverpool have reportedly made an offer for West Ham striker Carlton Cole. The Anfield club had attempted to sign the England international in the summer but a last ditch attempt to buy the 27 year old failed but Roy Hodgson is said to have made a fresh move for the former Chelsea man in the hope that the Merseyside club can sign Cole in January.
Liverpool representatives were reportedly at Craven Cottage on Boxing day where they saw the powerful striker bag a brace and it is understood that Upton Park co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan are willing to sell Carlton Cole for a fee in the region of £9m a valuation Hodgson is happy to meet.
Cole has found himself out of the Hammers line up for large chunks of the season as Avram Grant has opted on occasion to try out his other attacking options and therefore a move for the West Ham man may well be on the cards as Roy Hodgson looks to improve his attacking options in the hope of pushing his side back up the table after a very poor first half of the season.
