Man City boss Eriksson wants Chelsea's Cole

The Sun says City boss Sven Goran Eriksson made an audacious triple swoop for Cole and his Chelsea team-mates Shaun Wright-Phillips and Wayne Bridge this summer.

But the Blues refused to listen to offers.

Cole, 25, has not started a game for Chelsea this term.

A City insider said: "Joe is top of Sven's list."
