Rumours - Joe Cole to Arsenal or United

Published: 03 May 2010 - 07:07:25

Arsene Wenger loves a small, skilful player, so it's hardly surprising he was flirting with the soon-to-be out-of-contract Joe Cole at the weekend.

The Arsenal boss told the Star he thought Cole's situation at Chelsea was "interesting", and made it clear he was toying with the idea of flashing a leg at the England midfielder.

Cole has already been heavily linked to Manchester United, but may prefer to stay in the London area with a move to the Gunners.

According to reports, contract talks at Stamford Bridge stalled when Cole demanded a wage increase.

Meanwhile, Steve McClaren could be rewarded for his success at FC Twente in Holland with a top job in Germany.

The former England boss led Twente to their first Dutch title yesterday, and is now being linked with a move to last season's German champions Wolfsburg.

Finally, the Daily Mirror reckon that Steve Finnan will ignore offers to stay in the Premier League and stay with relegated Portsmouth.
