Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole is considering taking a significant pay cut to move to West Ham in the summer, according to Goal.com.
While Cole was a major signing for Liverpool in 2010, he has failed to impress, suffering injury problems as well as poor form at Anfield. The 29 year old has so far got eight Barclays Premier League starts for Liverpool to his name, and is reportedly looking to move to a club where he will be a bigger fish in a smaller pond.
West Ham are looking like the front runners to gain the England international’s signature, with Cole playing there as a youngster.
The only problem with West Ham’s move on the star is that they look set to be relegated this season, and will have very limited funds to invest in any new players.
Tottenham, Blackburn and QPR are also said to be interested in the Liverpool playmaker, and with Cole’s current wage of £90,000 a week, the star is said to be willing to cut that if it means he can move to a club where he’s happier.
“If a move that would be best for Joe's career and his family becomes available, then he will evaluate his options and make a decision,” a source told Goal.com.
