West Ham are ready to make a hopeful offer to re-sign former Upton Park favourite Joe Cole as Liverpool consider selling the England international after a very indifferent start to his Anfield career. Avram Grant hopes to bring 29 year old attacking midfielder back to the club he started his career with as they look to beat the drop after a horrid season thus far.
Joe Cole arrived with a fanfare when he joined on a free after running out his contract at Stamford Bridge but the former Chelsea man got off to a poor start when he was given his first red card of his career on the opening day of the season.
Cole has started just seven Premier League games this season and some sources believe the club is willing to accept offers for his services and West Ham are believed to be ready to offer £5m for a player who cost Liverpool nothing but is on a bumper wage packet that the club would happily have taken off the balance sheet.
Whilst a move to West Ham may be seen as a big step down for a player who just last season won the Premier League title the romantic notion of a return to the club he clearly has a great affinity for may be enough of a pull to see Joe Cole consider a move back to east London.
West Ham co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan have made attempts to bring other high profile signings to the club, such as Thierry Henry and David Beckham, and whilst those moves seem like pipe dreams a move for Cole may well have some chance of success.
