Liverpool ahead of rivals in race to sign Ashley Cole

Published 1 Comments

Liverpool are leading the race to sign Chelsea full-back Ashley Cole, according to The Independent.

The 33-year-old defender - who was left out of Roy Hodgson's England squad for this summer's World Cup - runs out of contract at the Blues next month, and is free to talk to other clubs. 

The Chelsea defender struggled for opportunities this term after being replaced by Cesar Azpilicueta in the first team role.

And now it appears that Liverpool are ahead of the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal in the race for the player's signature. 

Both City and Arsenal have been linked with a move for the veteran in recent time, but he could now be departing Jose Mourinho's side for Anfield in the up coming market.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers will be keen to add to his squad this summer, with his side set to take part in next season's Champions League.

Liverpool have been playing with the right-footed Jon Flanagan at left-back for the majority of the season, so Cole would add great experience to his side's defensive line.
