Carlton Cole, a two-goal hero for West Ham United against Manchester United in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night, will command a £10 million price tag when he goes up for sale in the January transfer window.

The Hammers are hoping that Cole’s performance against United will ignite fresh interest in the England centre-forward, who has fallen out with manager Avram Grant.

Grant axed Cole from the ‘Save Our Season’ Premier League game with Wigan and the Hammers suddenly hit form without him in the side. Cole was only recalled on Tuesday night because of injuries and grabbed a brace in a 4-0 win at Upton Park.

Cole has given Grant every reason to consider keeping him in the team, but the big question is whether the manager will ever completely forgive or forget the way the striker criticised his boss and his team-mates after the mauling at Anfield.

Even if Grant does give Cole another chance, a £10 million offer would be too good for the Hammers to refuse. (ESPN)

So there you have it. Any takers? Well there has been reported interest in Carlton Cole from Liverpool, Tottenham and Stoke City, to name just three sides, interested in signing the West Ham striker. Avram Grant appears to be open to selling last seasons topscorers as he seems very happy with the likes of Victor Obinna and Frederic Piquionne who have scored eight goals between them so far this season.

At 27 Cole still has a lot to offer and the last couple of seasons have arguably been his best, hence his inclusion in Fabio Capello’s England camp, but will a club really offer £10m for his services?
