Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole is on Fabio Capello's radar thanks to his form with Lille.

The Daily Star says the England coach has had Cole watched in his last two appearances – at home to Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday, three days after Lille’s 3-1 win at Auxerre.

Cole was a sub in the Auxerre match, but boss Rudi Garcia was keen to keep the ex-West Ham, Chelsea and Liver- pool star fresh for the Inter match, along with playmaker Eden Hazard.

Both came on against Auxerre and helped inspire the French champions to come back from a goal down to take all three points.
