Cole struggling to come to terms with Chelsea exit
The 28 year old was holding out for over £100,000-a-week to ink a new long-term deal at Chelsea.
And Chelsea eventually got so fed up with negotiations they withdrew an offer to extend Cole's contract on his existing £80,000-a-week salary.
Sources close to Cole reckon the ace has taken the news very badly as he desperately wanted to stay at Chelsea.
He has turned down a return to his old club West Ham and a move to the Emirates seems most likely.
