Liverpool fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking impressed at the latest claim from the Daily Mail who seem to think the Reds are set to make a final offer to Ashley Cole.
The former Chelsea defender is available on a free after leaving the club, and it had been reported that the left back was set to pen a deal with Serie A side Roma, to the disappointment of the punters in the tavern.
However, now the same punters have smiles on their faces and over a game of pool, they agree with our landlord that Brendan Rodgers should do anything and everything in his power to convince Cole that his future lies at Anfield.
Cole still has plenty left to give and has experience at the very top level – and would be ideal for their return to the Champions League next season – and is a far better option than the likes of Ryan Bertrand!
He is also free and would allow Rodgers to spend his transfer kitty on players to help their attacking game ahead of the departure of Suarez.
Liverpool fans. Would you like to sign Cole or do you think he is better off winding down his career in Serie A? Let us know your thoughts below.
