Galatasaray bid for Cole

Hammers consider offer for striker

Cole: Subject of interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray

Sky Sports Sources understand Galatasaray have made a bid for West Ham striker Carlton Cole.

The England international's future at Upton Park has been subject to speculation this summer following West Ham's relegation from the Premier League.

Stoke tried to sign Cole earlier this summer, but the player turned down the move to the Britannia Stadium.

Now Galatasaray have made a move for Cole as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Despite the transfer window closing on Wednesday a deal could still happen as the Turkish transfer window remains open until Monday 5th September.

Cole has started the season well for West Ham with three goals and it remains to be seen if they would consider selling the former Chelsea man.
