Joe Cole is set to be axed by Liverpool after enduring a miserable season at Anfield.

The former England international has scored just three goals since he arrived on Merseyside on a free transfer last summer.

Cole, 29, was sent off on his debut in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal on the opening day of the Barclays Premier League season. And the former Chelsea man has made only seven League starts since.

‘It’s tough on Joe because he is a great kid. But things just haven’t worked out for him’, a Liverpool source told the Sun.

‘Kenny is building a new Liverpool with the likes of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez and he wants to bring in more new players in the summer.

‘And, unfortunately, that means Joe will be surplus to requirements.’

Liverpool are said to want at least £10million for the former West Ham youngster.

Tottenham and West Ham are among his interested pursuers, although both are unlikely to fork out such a sum for a player who has struggled with form and injuries in recent seasons.
