Liverpool Make Shock Transfer Move for Chelsea Left-Back Ashley Cole

By on December 20, 2013

According to outrageous reports from CaughtOffside and the Daily Express, Liverpool are preparing a shock transfer move for Chelsea’s left-back Ashley Cole.

The 33-year-old defender has been in-and-out of Jose Mourinho’s first 11 recently, and has often been ousted by Cesar Azpilicueta in the left-back position.

Ashley Cole is reportedly unlikely to be offered a new contract before the end of the season when his current agreement ends. Liverpool hope to take advantage of this fragile contract position and make a move for the defender this January.

A move for the ageing defender hardly conforms with Liverpool’s usual policy of youth development, but Brendan Rodgers is tempted to make an exception for the legendary left-back.

While John Flanagan has done well recently, it is hard to ignore the fact that Ashley Cole would be a significant improvement in that position for Liverpool.

PSG and Spurs are reportedly keen on the player, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will be willing to move out of London to play for the first time in his career.
