AS Roma left-back Ashley Cole could be set to leave the club, despite only having joined them just two months ago on a free transfer after being released by Premier League giants Chelsea, according to Metro.

The former-Chelsea and Arsenal star came to the end of his contract at Stamford Bridge this summer and, after Roman Abramovich decided against offering him a new 12-month deal, Cole started to look for a new club.

Cole to Roma

Despite getting lucrative offers from MLS, Cole decided to reject their interest and stay in Europe as he wanted to stay in competitive football and also remain in the Champions League.

However, just months after signing for AS Roma on a two-year deal, Cole is already considering an exit from the club after failing to settle.

The Englishman hasn't been able to adapt to life in Italy and has also struggled to gel with his new team-mates, which was summed up in his first picture with his new club, where he is seen lurching in the background away from the rest of the team.

Cole not happy?

According to reports in Italy, Cole isn't enjoying Italy and Serie A as much as he thought and he is already considering offers from America ahead of a potential January more.

Orlando City and Toronto FC are just two sides that are interested in the veteran, and despite refusing to go to America in the summer, the 33-year-old may be set to complete a move in January to the MLS.

Cole has played one competitive match for his new side, a 2-0 victory against Fiorentina, but his career in Italy may only be a short stay as he already plans a swift exit from the club.
