Cole, 26, has been a revelation since Gianfranco Zola arrived at the club last year and is in the running to book his placein Fabio Capellos World Cup squad. Under-fire Liverpool boss Rafael Beni- tez has been keeping an eye on Cole over the past few months and is desperate to ease the pressure on the injury-stricken Fernando Torres. Cole enjoyed the most prolific season of his career last year after netting 12 goals, and he has already hit six this term despite the clubs poor start to the season. Hammerschiefsareconfidenttheycan ride out the January transfer window without losing their leading striker, who has thrived under the guidance of Zola (right). The Italian has been a father figure to his former Chelsea team-mate and is determined to build his side aroundthepaceandstrengthof Cole.

AndwithLiverpool also struggling for cash, Benitez may have to look else- where for a new striker in the wake of West Hams astonishing valua- tion of the formerly wayward striker. Meanwhile, Valon Behrami has admit- ted it is not the best time for him to be linking up with Switzerland again. The West Ham midfielder has only just recovered from a serious knee injury and has not played for his national team in more than a year. He was a surprise selection in Ottmar Hitzfelds squad for Satur- days international friendly with Norway in Geneva. Im going to play for Switzerland for the first time in a while and for me its not really the best time to go,hesaid.Istillneedtowork on my problem. I am getting bettereverygamebutIamnot 100 per cent. Its a difficult moment and I think about these things. I really like to give all I have to West Ham to be honest. We need that and we need to do betterthanthis.Iwanttostay here. CHELSEA have been stunned by the news that right-back Jose Bosingwa (left) is facing three months on the sidelines after having an operation on a knee injury. Bosingwa has been ruled out since he first sustained the problem against Aston Villa more than three weeks ago and had exploratory surgery this week. It is understood the damage to his ligaments is worse than first feared and the Portuguese defender has now had another operation to repair the problem. The 27-year-old will be missed by Carlo Ancelottis side as he offers a great attacking threat from right-back, though Chelsea do have Branislav Ivanovic, Juliano Belletti and Paulo Ferreira as cover. Bosingwas injury is also a blow to Portugal, who start their World Cup play- off against Bosnia on Saturday.
