Joe Cole's agent has revealed that the England international's future will be decided in the next three weeks.
The former West Ham United star has not been offered a new contract by Chelsea and is free to find a new club, with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham linked with securing his services.
The 28-year-old's agent, Kevin Giesse, was quoted on calciomercato.com as saying:"For now there is no news.
"The boy has just returned from South Africa and now he will go on holiday. There are clubs interested in him, we are talking about a world-class player.
"I think by the end of the World Cup there will be developments and within two to three weeks there will be some news. Are AC Milan and Juventus interested? All negotiations are possible and that is not garbage.
"Several English clubs have asked for information, but at the moment nobody has moved concretely. After the World Cup we'll be going to reach conclusions."
