Liverpool Alerted as Chelsea Put £17m Wing Wizard Up for Sale!

This England man is said to not have much of a Blues future under Mr. Ancelotti!

The Rumour

Joe Cole Chelsea 2008/09

Joe Cole could be on his way from Chelsea this summer.

The News of the World says Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is willing to offload Cole.

The Analysis

Rafa Benitez is apparently unconvinced of the merits of Albert Rieira after the Spaniard had an up and down first season at Anfield and the Liverpool boss has been linked with a number of left sided midfielders including decent Boro man Adam Johnson and vastly overrated Boro man Stewart Downing but surely a move for Joe Cole would trump any other players on Rafa’s wish-list?

Cole has been linked with a move to the Merseyside outfit before and now it appears Carlo Ancelotti doesn’t see the England man as part of his long term plans and with a World Cup looming the 27 year old won’t want to be stuck on the Stamford Bridge bench next term.

He would also fit in nicely to Benitez’s plans to bring in more British talent ahead of the 6+5 ruling that could well come into effect in the Premier League soon, hence his signing of Glen Johnson last week.

The Likelihood

Joe Cole to Liverpool: There has been talk of Cole being up for a move to join his former Hammers boss Harry Redknapp at Spurs but surely he would far prefer to move to a title chasing outfit with Champions League football on offer!
