Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole could reportedly be offered the opportunity to bring an end to his Anfield nightmare with a loan move to former club West Ham in the January transfer window.

Cole has endured a testing time at Liverpool since moving to Anfield from Chelsea in the summer of 2010, and spent the entirety of last season on loan with French club Lille.

The 31-year-old had hoped to begin his Liverpool in earnest following the appointment of Brendan Rodgers as Kenny Dalglish's successor, but Cole has failed to make an impact of note so far.

Rodgers was openly critical of Cole's performance during the Capital One Cup defeat to Swansea, while the former Chelsea star was substituted during the Europa League loss against Anzhi Makhachkala.

A move away from Liverpool would seemingly be inevitable for Cole, and a January switch to West Ham could reportedly be on the cards for the ex-Upton Park star.

According to the Daily Star, West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is keen to sign Cole on loan from Liverpool in the winter transfer window, in a bid to revive his flagging career.

Cole made scored 13 goals in 150 appearances for West Ham after graduating through their esteemed academy, and was appointed captain at the age of only 21.
