Carlton Cole: West Ham striker is a target for Turkish side Kasimpasa

Cole's future at West Ham has been the subject of speculation this month with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.

The forward is yet to be offered a new deal by the Premier League club and they could try to sell him now rather than risk losing him for nothing in the summer.

West Ham have brought in two strikers on loan this month in Marouane Chamakh and Wellington Paulista, and with Andy Carroll set to return from injury, Cole could find himself pushed well down the pecking order at Upton Park.

The news has alerted a number of teams at home and abroad to his possible availability before the close of the transfer window.

Kasimpasa have expressed an interest and they are thought to be locked in talks with the Hammers in trying to agree a fee for the former Chelsea man.

West Ham are thought to be willing to sell for a fee in the region of £3million and Kasimpasa's Turkish rivals Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are believed to be keeping a watching brief on the situation.

A number of Premier League clubs are also keeping tabs on Cole and could move for him before the transfer window slams shut next Thursday.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
