Football Liverpool: Cole to Liverpool

Football Liverpool: Cole to Liverpool - fact or fiction??

Joe Cole ChelseaRumours are circulating in the football press that Liverpool are to mount a swoop for Chelsea's Joe Cole. We can't work this one out - is it the football press putting two & two together to come up with the latest headline or is there more to it??

Given Rafa Benitez's latest remarks about an Englishman who can play on the left he certainly fits the bill, though the long pursued Gareth Barry does also. It would be a remarkable first move in English Football by big Felipe Scholari if he is sold to Liverpool. Selling someone of Cole's quality to one of your biggest football rivals certainly takes some nerve.

It's interesting that the local Liverpool press and reknowned mouthpiece of the football club, the Liverpool Echo, is yet to run with this one. Given that, we at Footy Focus tend to think it's not a goer. Though as soon as we see it there, we're down the bookies to get a bet on!
