New Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson is interested in signing Joe Cole to replace Yossi Benayoun. With Benayoun now a Chelsea player, Liverpool look very bare in the playmaker department, and Cole would be a sensible, if fairly expensive signing.
Of course, Liverpool face stiff competition from both Arsenal and Tottenham for Cole’s signature, with Spurs looking favourites at the moment – Arry Redknapp did sign Cole for West Ham, and you imagine the player would want to stay in London if possible. I just wish more England players would look for moves abroad – the narrow-mindedness of our players is one of the main reasons why we fail on the international stage.
Kopites, would you be happy to see Cole in Liverpool red next season?
