According to today's Daily Mail West Ham United have again been linked with a move for England midfielder David Beckham, and ex-Hammers star Joe Cole.

Beckham was firstly linked with a switch to East London back in January has once again been targeted by the club's co-owner David Sullivan.

The 35 year-old who will miss the World Cup in South Africa with an ankle injury, has been lined up by Sullivan to regain the dressing room and revive the Hammers' ailing form.

Sullivan said: "I’d love David Beckham. He has massive cult status in east London and still has a house near Bishop’s Stortford, not far from our training ground. He’s from Chingford, which is our heartland. We are the club of east London and Essex.

"If AC Milan didn’t want him in January and if he still wanted to do it, I’d love to have him. He seems a remarkable professional.

Meanwhile, Cole is out of contract at Chelsea and it seems unlikely that he will start at Stamford Bridge next season. The Hammers have been sniffing around the winger for some time, but it is believed that London rivals Tottenham are also in the hunt.

Co-owner Sullivan was believed to have told Cole to "name his price", but the England wide-man is said to have snubbed the offer in a bid to carry on playing European football.

West Ham are looking to appoint a new manager this week, widely believed to be Avram Grant, and it remains to be seen whether the club can afford stars like Beckham and Cole and whether the new man wants to build a team around them.
