Cole’s agent suggests it’s Arsenal or Spurs
By Football Talk.
Joe Cole’s agent has denied his client is bound for Italy and hinted that his likely destination will be either Arsenal or Tottenham. Speculation today suggested Cole could be on the verge of joining AC Milan but speaking to ESPN Soccernet, Cole’s agent David Giess says a move away from England was “pure speculation” and claims champions league football is still of vital importance to his client.
“Football is the most important thing to Joe and continuing to play in the Champions League is high on his priorities.”
Given that Cole has just been released by premier league champions Chelsea, and Manchester United appeared to withdraw from the race last week, it leaves only Arsenal and Tottenham able to offer Cole champions league football.
Several media reports have also suggested that Cole and his wife Carly are keen to remain in London to keep their new baby near their families, so everything now points to a head-to-head battle between North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham for Cole’s signature. Cole and his family are away on holiday leaving David Giess to negotiate transfer dealings.
