Sunderland are willing to go to £15 million for West Ham United striker Carlton Cole.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland are hoping to convince West Ham to sell below their asking price as the clock ticks on this summer's market.

West Ham have already quoted Liverpool and Stoke £15m for Cole but are short of cash.

They are hopeful of selling Valon Behrami to Fiorentina or Roma, and Alessandro Diamanti to Brescia but the fees are relatively small.
