Cole eyes Roma move

Former Chelsea full back Ashley Cole is ready to join Serie A side AS Roma, according to The Daily Express.

Ashley Cole

The 33-year-old defender is currently a free agent following the expiry of his contract at Stamford Bridge earlier this week. Rumours had circulated that he could move to America to sign a lucrative contract to play in MLS, as his former Chelsea team mate Frank Lampard seems to be set to do, but the Roman side have now emerged as favourites to secure Cole’s services.

Cole joined Chelsea from London rivals Arsenal in 2006 in controversial circumstances. After an illegal approach from the Blues that resulted in fines for Chelsea and their manager Jose Mourinho, Cole himself, and his agent, he eventually moved to Stamford Bridge for a knock-down £5 million amid outrage at his huge wage demands.

On the field there is no doubting his talent, and he made over 300 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea during his time with the club, as well as establishing himself in the left back spot for the England national team. His 107 international appearances make him the fifth most capped player for England.

Roma could now turn to Cole to shore up their defence, which was seen as a weak point last season, and could be further undermined should Moroccan international Mehdi Benatia complete his proposed move to Manchester City.
