Recent reports suggest Tottenham are keen to make an offer for Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is believed to be interested in Cole who has just a year left on his Blues contract doubled with the fact that new boss Carlo Ancelotti has bolstered his midfield this summer.

The addition of Yuri Zhirkov indicates that Cole is slipping down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and Redknapp senses an opportunity to give the midfielder a chance to play regular first team football.

A move to a club where he will play regularly also bodes well for Cole’s chances to push for a spot in Fabio Capello’s World Cup squad.
