Interest is building in the story coming from the Daily Express here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The publication have both Chelsea and Liverpool fans rushing to the bar to hear he latest news from our landlord after claiming Liverpool were emerging as favourites to land Ashley Cole.
The England international left back looks to have played his last game for the Blues and as our punters note, after his emotional reaction to the final home game of the season at Stamford Bridge, we think he is preparing for a final swansong elsewhere.
Liverpool are the shock contenders to land Cole and we think this could be a brilliant move for Brendan Rodgers who needs to tighten up that defence if he wants to kick the Reds up to the next level – and they wont’ win the title without doing so.
Chelsea meanwhile have been heavily linked with Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno and that hands Manchester United a massive boost in their chase for Southampton’s Luke Shaw, with the battle for the left back all but over if Chelsea decide to look elsewhere for Cole’s replacement.
Do you think Cole would be a good signing for Liverpool or does Rodgers need to bring in a younger alternative? Let us know your thoughts below.
