Arsene Wenger has reiterated that he very much still intends to get Theo Walcott to sign as new long term deal with the Arsenal. Speaking at a press conference today Wenger suggested playing him in his preferred position up front could be the deal breaker.
According to the Press Association, Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole is having a medical at West Ham ahead of his proposed return to the club where he began his career.
Cole has started just nine Barclays Premier League games since he swapped Chelsea for Liverpool in the summer of 2010.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers said that he did not requite Cole's services when he took over last summer and the midfielder is keen to go back to Upton Park, where he began his career back in 1994.
The former England midfielder Joe Cole could be about to return to London, after he failed to establish a place in the first team at Liverpool. Cole could be set for a return to West Ham where he began his career though QPR are also said to be interested.
Cole joined Liverpool from Chelsea in 2010 but has yet to start a Premier League game this season.
Chelsea have been given permission by Newcastle to talk to their striker Demba Ba about moving to Stamford Bridge. The 27 year-old Senegalese striker has a clause in his contract which allows him to talk to other clubs if a bid of £7m is made.
Chelsea have sold striker Daniel Sturridge to Liverpool for a fee reported to be around £12m. The striker has fallen out of favour at Stamford Bridge and has started only one Premier League game this season.
