West Ham boss confirms Liverpool interest in Cole

The Reds showed an interest in signing the 26-year-old striker late on transfer deadline day.

Reports linked Liverpool with a £9million move for the England striker.

“I don’t think it was an offer. (Babel) was one of the suggestions to do or not to do.”
