Liverpool are planning a January swoop for West Ham striker Carlton Cole according to reports.

The England striker has been attracting interest from a number of clubs and due to West Ham's financial difficulties it is understood they will be forced to listen to offers.

The former Chelsea striker has been a consistent performer since moving to Upton Park and has scored six goals in the Premier League so far this season.

It's suggested that Anfield boss Rafa Benitez has identified the 25-year-old as the answer to Liverpool's threadbare attack.

Arsenal are also showing an interest along with a host of Spanish clubs according to today's report.
