Liverpool hope to tempt Joe Cole with £90,000-a-week contract offer!

• Hodgson wants to make Londoner his first signing
• Lure of first-team football may be crucial factor


Joe Cole

Liverpool hope Joe Cole will resist the lure of remaining in London and agree to become Roy Hodgson's first signing as their manager on a deal worth £90,000-a-week.

The England international has held talks with Anfield officials and Tottenham Hotspur over a lucrative free transfer following his release by Chelsea. Although the early indication was that the 28-year-old wanted to stay in the capital Liverpool, who are unable to offer Cole Champions League football, believe their terms and the prospect of regular first-team football may yet entice the midfielder to Merseyside.

Hodgson, who would prefer an answer from Cole this week as he prepares a makeshift squad for Liverpool's Europa League third-round qualifier on 29 July, said: "I know we've been connected with him, and it's good to know we're connected with players of that quality, but I don't have anything to report on the subject."

Liverpool's clearout has continued with the club agreeing a £5m fee with Fiorentina for Emiliano Insua. The young Argentina defender is in Italy to discuss personal terms and would leave Liverpool without a recognised left-back should he accept the contract on offer. The club has also received a bid of around £4m from Olympiakos for Albert Riera but are holding out for closer to £5m.

Most of the papers appear to be reporting that Cole is joining Liverpool so it looks quite likely..
