Carlton Cole outlines his West Ham United targets

Carlton Cole wants to score more goals for West Ham United this season and is determined to help the club quality for Europe.

West Ham United striker Carlton Cole has outlined his targets for the 2014-15 season.

The 31-year-old Englishman says that he wants to score more goals, but insists that the team comes before his personal ambitions.

Cole has been on the books of West Ham since 2006, but his importance in the team has dwindled recently.

The former Chelsea striker has fallen down the pecking order at the Boleyn Ground following the arrivals of Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho in the summer transfer window.

With Andy Carroll also regaining full fitness, chances will be limited for Cole, who has made just three starts in the Premier League so far this season.

In eight league appearances, Cole has scored two goals and created four chances, while having a 57% pass accuracy and a 80% shot accuracy.

West Ham are currently fourth in the Premier League table with 18 points from 11 matches and will take on Everton away from home on Saturday.
