Decorated left-back to hold talks with Serie A outfit.
Former Chelsea and Arsenal left-back Ashley Cole is poised to hold transfer talks with AS Roma, according to the Daily Mail.
The 33-year-old was recently released by the Blues, having spent eight years at Stamford Bridge.
He won one Premier League title, four FA Cups, one League Cup, one Champions League and one Europa League at Chelsea and, despite being omitted from Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the World Cup, he still has much to offer.
Such is the faith in Cole’s ability, he has been linked with interest from AS Monaco, Liverpool, Barcelona, AC Milan and even old club Arsenal.
He is now set to discuss terms with Roma, who were runners up in Serie A last season – their seventh second-place finish since they were last champions in 2001.
Roma boasted an excellent defensive record last term, keeping 21 clean sheets and conceding an average of just 0.66 goals per league game.
The Mail claim that Cole, who was capped 107 times by England at senior level prior to his international retirement in May, will be offered a two-year contract at Roma.
