Metro make a shock claim for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they note that Andre Villas-Boas could well be set to move for former West Ham United striker and free agent Carlton Cole.
The 29-year-old is thought to be training with the North London club and this has of course raised some eyebrows and led people to question if Andre Villas-Boas is willing to land the free agent and try and bring him back to something resembling his best next season.
The forward has of course already spent time playing for London rivals Chelsea and West Ham and now it seems that another London club could well be on his list of employers.
It was claimed that Cole featured in a behind closed doors friendly for the club and even netted a goal, although reports of a transfer were quickly denied by the club and officials.
Despite AVB already signing Roberto Soldado this summer and having his hands full trying to sort out the future of Gareth Bale, as one of our punters observes, the Portuguese manager is keeping himself even busier and still trying to bring more talent in the club in their race for a top four finish after coming so close and just missing out last term.
