West Ham in the Sunday Papers
The News of the World say that Carlton Cole hopes to back in training in two weeks. West Ham are hopeful Cole will be available for the last few matches of the season. The paper say that Dean Ashton has also almost recovered and West Ham will accept offers of £7.5 million for the player in the summer (which kind of contradicts what Gianfranco Zola said himself last week, that having Ashton back will be like a new signing for him).
The News of the World also claim that West Ham are chasing FC Schalke striker Kevin Kuranyi and that Portsmouth and Sunderland are after West Ham's James Collins, both clubs think he's worth around £4 million.
The Mail claim that there are two potential £80 million buyers for West Ham, neither of whom have moved to due diligence but The Mail know they are both waiting for the optimum time to pounce (at the end of the season).
The People say that Gianfranco Zola will try to resign Yossi Benayoun in the summer.
The Mirror say that West Ham are set to lead the chase for Ukranian international Oleksandr Aliyev.
