Ashley Cole has received eight offers as he nears Chelsea exit

Liverpool face significant competition in the race to sign Ashley Cole, with reports suggesting that the Chelsea defender has received approaches from eight different clubs.

Cole is out of contract this summer and looks set to exit Stamford Bridge following a series of revealing and heartfelt posts sent out on the player's Twitter feed last night. And according to The Daily Telegraph, it looks as though he is positively spoilt for choice as he carefully ponders his next move.

The same source reports that Liverpool are believed to be one of the clubs to have made an offer to the £120,000-per-week ex-England international, with Spanish giants and Champions League finalists Real Madrid the only other club mentioned specifically by name.

There is still time for Cole to extend his eight-year stay at Chelsea, of course, but his most recent revelations would appear to suggest that such an outcome now looks somewhat unlikely.

At 33, there is simply no doubt that Cole is not quite as effective a defender as he once was.

Despite this, however, you would think that is still fully capable of excelling in the English top-flight or indeed in any of the world's more reputable leagues.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers would surely be thrilled to have the opportunity to bring Cole to Anfield, with the left-back position having proved somewhat problematic over the course of the 2013/14 campaign.
